Line Corners in Circuit

Postby shadgrind » Tue Mar 05, 2013 7:53 pm

I followed the circuitikz example here, and it compiled fine. But upon inspecting the corners of the circuit I found that the lines were not joined properly: Here's a magnified image of what I'm talking about:

That's the upper right corner, and as you can see the corner is jagged. The lower right corner has the same problem. I tried using the "line join=miter" option but that didn't help. Has anyone here been able to get mitered line joins at corners, using the circuitikz package? I'd really like to find a fix since I prefer the coiled inductor symbol in circuitikz over the one in TikZ' built-in circuit library (circuits.ee.IEC, which seems to have the same problem but only at the final corner in a completed circuit). I'm probably missing something easy.

The pst-circ package has the same issue, by the way. The only circuit package I've seen so far that doesn't have this problem is the makecirc package, which unfortunately doesn't have the fancy inductor symbol I like.

Definitely not a viewer problem. Seemingly MetaPost does a better job here than PGF/TikZ and PSTricks. Did you think about writing a note to the maintainers of the concerned packages? I'm afraid that nothing else remains to be done for you or for anybody else.
