Chapter 4. WORKING WITH OBJECTS > Adding Corner Effects

Adding Corner Effects

InDesign can modify the shape of objects by adding special corner effects. You can apply these effects to any object that has corner points, rather than smooth points. (For more information on the difference between corner and smooth points, see Chapter 5, "Pen and Béziers.")

To apply corner effects:

1.
Select an object with corner points.

2.
Choose Object >Corner Effects. The Corner Effects dialog box appears .

3.
Choose one of the effects from the Effect pop-up list.

4.
Set the size of the effect.

Tip

Check Preview so you can see how the settings look.

5.
Click OK to apply the settings .

Tip

You can change corner effects later by selecting the object and reopening the dialog box. However, the actual points of the effect cannot be manipulated.
