Weird gcode export

Please, we have been using Easel for a long time.
We love Easel. We love to pay Easel.
We have spread the world about Easel.
But this is not a normal gcode for a rectangle.
What’s wrong on exporting.
I swear we have only drawn a simple cutout rectangle.
Please, help us.

This is the Gcode and I’ve attached a screenshot at the bottom

Are you talking about the radius in the corners?

In my opinion, for a rectangle/square four stings of code movement are enough, like:

G01 X6 Y1064 F1000
G01 X714 Y1064 F1000
G01 X714 Y6 F1000
G01 X6 Y6 F1000

move up, left, down, right (or wherever)

Instead Easel generate six line for each movement and coordinates change along the travel.
I hope it can be understandable.

Easel is adding a radius to the corners…I don’t know why.

ok, grazie!

For a square outside corner the radius shown will still give the desires results. As I recall reading somewhere that is the preferred path. The machine works best if sudden changes in direction are avoided.
