Partially rounded/angled stroke caps

Recommended Posts

Hi team,

I decided to check whether this feature has been requested but I couldn't find anything similar on the forums so apologies if I'm doubling up here.

I was creating some artwork today that could have really used partially rounded stroke caps. Currently there's the option to have fully rounded or fully square caps (and butt cap, which is also a square cap) but no option for a variant of the two.

I've attached a screenshot illustrating the difference if that's not clear (affinity-stroke-cap-variant.png).

Also, an added feature could be the angle of the stroke cap - this would make it a powerful addition to shapes or paths whose angles or ends need to be something other than a flat, squared off (or rounded) end. Let's call this 'Stroke Cap Angle'? I've kind of mocked it up in the attachments to illustrate the resulting effect.

I haven't thought this through thoroughly but it was a feature I felt would be very useful, avoiding the need to expand strokes which allows you to round the corners of an expanded path but you lose the benefit of it being a stroke.
