How to get rid of rounded edges in Inkskape?

I was just trying to draw a square in Inkskape; so I clicked on create rectangles and squares and drew a square like this:

But I still get rounded edges. Why does this happen and how can I avoid it? All i want is a perfect square.


Inkscape remembers the last settings used, and when you create a rectangle its corners have the same properties of the last rectangles you made.

You can get rid of the angles in several ways. Three of them are available when the button used to create rectangles is down, see also here.

1. You can click on Make corners sharp button, as evidenced user-unknonwn, and get sharp corners immediately:

2. You can put to zero both the radii Rx and Ry of the curvature:

change radii

3. Alternatively, you can tweak the control points of the radii until done:

Next rectangles will be with straight corners:

You can also change the defaults for new objects using the Preferences (Edit -> Preferences or Shift-Ctrl-P):
