Event Timeline

It looks like a confusion between Viewport Display and Render display. Because particles are not rendered as Path in viewport, either. Although they should be.

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Confirmed, Medium.

Confirmed, will check on this.
Note that the particle and hair system will be replaced soonish, so this might not be top priority...
