The Rounded Rectangle command allows you to create a symmetrical rounded rectangle with a specified width, height, corner radius and inline(s). This can be used to create standard cabinets.
The property bar contains the following items, going left to right:
Enter the height of the rounded rectangle.
Enter the width of the rounded rectangle.
Enter the radius of the corners. This number can be negative; in which case you get a notch.
Enter the amount of inline you want applied to the rectangle.
Enter the amount of a second inline you want applied to the rectangle.
Number of Sides
This defaults to 4, but you can change this if you decide you want a different shape. See Polygon
Convert to Static Graphic
If you do not want the ability to edit the Rounded Rectangle using the above options, cllick on the Convert to Static Graphic button.
Alter Aspect Ratio
When Alter Aspect ratio is selected (highlighted, or pressed down), then you can change the Height and Width independently. When this is not selected, then any change to the Height or Width will automatically change the other dimension to maintain the same aspect ratio.
Notched Corners vs. Rounded Corners
One of these must be selected. The default is rounded corners.
Create Separate Objects
This is an option that determines how a Rounded Rectangle with one or more Inlines is scaled. If the Scaled button is not pressed, then the inline amount will stay consistent as the shape is scaled. If the Scaled button is pressed, then it will scale proportionately, meaning that the inline amount(s) will change.
The red exclamation point icon, when pressed, lets you see the changes to your Rounded Rectangle in real time.
