Yes, that's what it looks like without the code that detects the composite line style. The code has been there for a long time (since release 1 in both open source and MGE) so I am not sure why it is not working in your case. Using two layers is equivalent functionality though, even in terms of performance. I'll check to make sure the code is still working in the latest build.

Hi Trajan,

I'm using MGE 2008 and I couldn't get proper endcaps using single road layer
with composite linestyle. Please see attached example. I guess MGOS stitches
them right?
