I know StrokeWidth irritates you, and I can sympathize.FreeRaider wrote:This is one of the reasons why I do not like this new meter.
I would have preferred a meter that uses the same method of reasoning (for example as it is used Roundline) of the others, with the numerical certainty of "Where it starts, where it ends, the starting position X and Y" and especially StrokeWidth used as the border of the geometric figure included totally in it.
But consider this. If we just automatically integrated the "stroke" into the definition and size of the "shape", then if you had a shape like this:
And you wanted to "scale" it on the X-axis, you would end up with this:
That's not what you want at all, what you want is this:
So the stroke size has nothing to do with the size of the shape. If you define a StrokeWidth of 4, it will stay 4, no matter what you do to the shape, scale it, rotate it, resize it, skew it, whatever. You define and control the size of the shape, and the stroke used to "draw" the shape is just centered on the edge of the shape.
