Small feature request here.

Sometimes I would like to see flat cap (perpendicular to wire direction)
on wires/segments, maybe specifically when drawing thick wires on a
document layer. I realize I can use rectangles to do the same, but the
wire method of drawing allows more flexibility to move and extend the
length.

Hi Morten,

I hope you're doing well. I agree that it should be a feature, right now
there is a small workaround though to keep you going.

Using the INFO command set the curve to be something stupidly small like
0.000001 hit apply. Now you can set the cap to be flat, without really
modifying the trace or line.

Definitely something that needs to be better implemented.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia
