This is a headzup

I will make a feature request

Can't change the stroke miter limit in after effects type

Which causes issues if you have stroke only text

As an example

Type a capital A in illustrator.

Make it stroke only

it works because the miter limit is more than 1.

set it to 1 and the top point in the counter goes flat

 

But that is how AE does it and you can't change it. There is no way (in some fonts) to get it back

Fine I can link to an AI file

But this  is a  thing I just spotted that the text / stroke engine is lacking and a lot of artists will miss and not know why their type is incorrect.

I thought it was a font thing, because Fonts get broken in after effects ALL the time.
