Chapter 3. Rectangles and Ellipses > Creating a Rounded Rectangle

Creating a Rounded Rectangle

After drawing a rectangle, you can optionally round its corners. You can round all corners at once or choose the ones you want to round. Corners can be slightly rounded to create a softening effect or very rounded, almost changing the rectangle into a circle.

To round the corners of a rectangle:

1.
In the toolbox, select the Shape Tool icon from the Shape Tool flyout (Figure 3.3) or press .

Figure 3.3. Select the Shape Tool icon from the Shape Tool flyout.


2.
Select the rectangle you wish to round.

Four black nodes appear around the rectangle (Figure 3.4). Unselected nodes—if any—are displayed as circles.

Figure 3.4. When selected with the Shape Tool, a rectangle initially has four nodes—one in each corner.


3.
To set the same rounding for all corners (Figure 3.5), make sure that all nodes are selected (black) and then drag any node.

Figure 3.5. After creating a rectangle with four equally-rounded corners, the number of nodes doubles to eight.

To set the rounding for individual corners, click to select a node (or -click to select multiple nodes) and then drag any selected node.
