Width Random

When a polyline exists out of several segments you can use the 'Width Random' command to add random widths to the segments of the polyline. You can apply random widths in several ways. By default the widths are created with a flowing method. In that case the end width of one segment will be the start width of the next. You can also choose the irregular method. The start width and end width of the segments have no relation to each other in that case. Or you can apply the widths segmented. That way the start and end width of every segment is the same so the segment has a constant width. If you choose to apply the triangular method the command will apply a wider width at the start of a segment and a narrower width at the end. By default the widths are defined by a minimum and a maximum value you can set. If you want to have a bit more control on the widths you can define an increment. For even more control you can choose the list method. In that case the command will pick a width randomly from a list you define.
