Feature request #9479
change composer item frame join style to miter join
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|

QGIS is great, and its composer rocks; however, the current frame join style isn't great (see attached map frame), it really isn't playing nice when it comes to thick frames. Doing more and more compositions via qgis itself, this has become a near-daily irritant.
Relying on miter join would be a much nicer setting for near-all case scenarios. It's also be in line with Inkscape (where miter join is default) and HTML/CSS styling (where miter join is the only avaiable option)
Ideally, it would be nice for the frame panel of composer items to offer the three possible joint styles (bevel, miter, round). No string translation needed as strings already present for the Outline: Simple line symbology.

Just a small update on the above. I think there's both an issue and a feature request at play here :)
The issue: the current join style (bevel) used in qgis composer is not very friendly to most layouts; that IMO is worth fixing before 2.2 release and should involve modifying most probably a single line of code.
The request: to offer the most versatility, the user should be able to select join style used by composer items via a drop down list (just like outline: simple line symbology).
