Default Issue when sizing up graphics

Thanks in advance for your help. Can anyone tell me why in Corel Draw when I size up a simple vector graphic I have issues with pointed tips in the graphic squaring off?

I've played with the "miter limit" but that does not solve the problem sometimes.

See attached image to see what I mean.

I don't have a clue about corel, I use Ai, but in my software there is an option how that ''spike'' would be seen. Curved, pointed and so on. Check if you can find something similar.


corel:
Tip:
Miter limits can be use on sharp corner of your layout... if you often use OUTLINE THICKNESS... adjust MITER LIMITS to 5 to make your edges or corners sharp and pointed... just press F12 to find the miter limits...
sample for this... if your making a star and adjusting the outlines points bigger than 10 pts.

sorry i can't help with corel either,
but that is a strange quirk

can you change the design to curves, instead of a line?

Can you show an enlarged picture of the actual nodes at those points?

A screen grab of your Outline Properties dialog box would help too.
