I'm trying to follow this tutorial, but it seems that somthing goes wrong since the very beginning. Indeed, starting with this simple path enter image description here when I add the Power stroke effect, I unexpectedly obtain the following enter image description here How can I have this effect behaving just the way it is supposed to?

Inkscape version: 0.91

  • The settings on your screen don't match what's on the tutorial... Perhaps that is the issue. – Luciano Aug 21 '17 at 12:57
  • What settings are you referring to? – Enrico Maria De Angelis Aug 21 '17 at 13:22
  • start / end cap. Check the answer from Billy Kerr. – Luciano Aug 21 '17 at 13:24
  • I've played with those settings, but nothing changes (not the way it should). – Enrico Maria De Angelis Aug 21 '17 at 13:25
  • @EnricoMariaDeAngelis No matter what settings I make I can't replicate the problem. This leads me to suspect a bug in 0.91 – Billy Kerr Aug 21 '17 at 13:28

I can't replicate your problem with the most recent Inkscape 0.92. Perhaps if you were to update to the most recent version it might fix it. It could be a bug which has been fixed.

  • With version 0.92 everything works fine. It seems that is was a bug in the 0.91 version. (Provided that uninstalling that version hasn't removed strange and unwanted settings causing that behavior.) – Enrico Maria De Angelis Aug 21 '17 at 14:31
