Sure can. It was just a question out of curiosity. I think the sharp corner effect is the most used Door Front style i know of.
There are some pictures i took, i hope it is understandable.
Here is a picture of the Shaker now as it is. The Inner Edge of the carving is rounded up in the corners:

While a Shaker Style with sharp corners should look like this:
Inside sharp Corner.jpg
This can only be done if the (you call it 'Door Inside Edge') is not drawn to be ON the line but Inside. As Vectric doesn't allow you to make a sharp corner if you draw ON the Line. (Which is clearly impossible. in which direction should the Vcarve do the corner, if you go ON the line.)
Here a picture of what you cannot Tick:

Here a picture of what it looks like if you draw the Vector to be Inside the line, the Settings are tick-able:
INside can tick.jpg
But... if i simply do this, then we'll have a problem with the 'Panel Pocket'. As the Vector for the 'Inside Edge' is now on the inside of the Vector, the Vector for the Pocket stayed still.
Here a picture of what i mean:
Inside, Vector needs to be changed.jpg
To fix this, the Vector for the Outer side should be moved towards the interior and this Offset would have to be the depth of cut for the 'Inside Edge'. Offset Distance = Cut Depth of Inner Edge. Or in this Gadgets Case it would be the 'B- Radius' Value.

But i think this would be too much work. As you'd have to change a lot of the Code to make another Tickable option for sharp Corners.
I think more important than this is that the Pocket Bit uses Imperial sizes. And if i change the bit it creates the Pocket correct, but the 2nd Vector that will be drawn, will have to have the Pocket Bit again changed. As it changes back to imperial.
The Gadget as is, is already a great help and i see has been downloaded already a couple of times.
Thank you for it Jim.
