I've added a stroke around some outlined text, but there are these small spiky points that appear, and I'm looking for a way to get rid of them, I've tried changing the cap and corner stroke settings, which has removed the spiky points, but also changes the shape of the stroke which I dont want. The stroke needs to look like the example below, still needs square corners etc. Any help would be great! 🙂

So setting them to chamfer is also not right?

 

Maybe try not using a stroke, but instead adding a black fill an d using Offset path effect on it?

Thanks for replying!

I'm not sure what you mean by setting them to chamfer, would it be possible to explain a little more about that?

Thank you, I had tried this earlier and it didn't work, but then I also changed the mitre limit and this fixed the problem 🙂
