Hi Elaine,
   sorry for the wrong subject, but now I stick to it for consistency 
:-). Thanks a lot for the hint, but unfortunately, neither of them 
works  in my hands (vers. 1.6.2 UBUNTU 10.04):

I cannot find any option for line-width in the Icosahedron Surface 
dialogue and clicking the line does not select anything (the magnifying 
glass tells me that nothing is selected).
Am I doing anything wrong?
best, Dieter
