    Thank you, Filip. That’s a pity, cause I also want to use non-curved lines. It’s strange that it doesn’t distribute well on a corner (image01), if I apply the offset path it work just fine (image02).
    Still hope there is a solution for this, it seemed like such an easy thing; a double stroke. Never expected it to be this challenging in AE.

    Of course My implementation of using text has its own shotcomings, but apart from that; offsetting bezier curves is mathematically a difficult problem as you can read here:

    Thank you Filip, that goes way above my head. 😀
    Offsetting doesn’t seem to be the problem though, that works quite well.
    It’s just a pity that you can’t make a stroke style or a path that is still handled as a stroke when offsetting. Well, back to the drawing board! Again, thank you for all your help.
