Feature request: rounded stroke corners

Dear Glyphs team!

Working with Glyphs’s strokes is working very well and I’m happy this feature has been added. However, I’m very missing one small feature I’m acquainted working with in other vector applications: the possibility to round the corners with the same radius as the terminals.

While it is already possible to round the stroke’s terminals, it would be great to have also the possibility to round the corners of a stroke in the same radius. Especially for creating rounded typefaces this would render a big advantage.

Currently, the only option for a stroke’s corners is that they are sharp:

With the feature I propose, there could be a toggle in the UI as in this mock-up (see the bottom right corner):

Switching to the rounded option would round the corner with a radius which is equal to half of the stroke’s width, as it works for the stroke’s terminals (mock-up):

This would come in very handy and I’d appreciate if you could consider my proposal! :blush:

Best regards,
Basti

As I need a lot of monoline typefaces for pen plotting and laser engraving I second this!

Hi! Has there been any progress on this? I am in the same boat and would like to round the corners of these corners non-destructively. Thanks.

I’ve explored using Glyphs to create a font for a keyboard legend design and truly miss this feature, too.

I added it but it will be in a future version.

hello, is there any update on this?
workaround is to cut the paths, but obviously this isn’t ideal…

We are work on it.

Great to hear that!
I was just searching for this, Right now I’m using separate strokes to have the same effect, but it feels like the wrong thing to do (and has issues with variable fonts).

This will come in the next bigger release.

Just wanted to carefully asked when this is coming? Thanks for the anazing work :relieved:

No date yet, but we are close now then we were back then.
