    Default Rounded Corners

    I'm with some problemas and I dont know if this inssue happens because its not complete or because my lack of experience.
    I drew a simple retangle and make the edges rounded, but i dont found anything to block the rounded style to not change when I strain or compress that retangle, any suggestion?

    The rectangle will compress the rounded corners when you compress / scale it. The solution is to convert the rectangle to Editable Shape (In the Arrange drop down menu) You can now use the shape editor tool to select the nodes (say all those on the right hand side) and move them either by Ctrl dragging or with the arrow keys.

    what can be simpler than what egg states? AND it's editable - you don't have to do all corners - just one or some

    Andreh,

    What's the problem? The whole operation takes a matter of seconds. If you want to see a hard way, look here

    @egg: As far as I see (I don't no xara for more than some days) the problem is that it isnt possible to resize the rounded corners after converting them to editable shapes. In Inkscape there is an option for choosing "scale corners" yes/no and "scale outline" yes/no. This is a very handy feature.

    Hi Andreh,

    The inability to lock the aspect ratio of corners when squashing rectangles (or other objects) has been something that Xtreme users have wanted for a long time!

    People have worked around it in various clever ways but we recognise that it would be a good feature to have and is exactly the kind of thing that prompted us to make Xara LX open source.

    If you're interested in adding a "Scale corners" option to Xara LX, please head on over to www.xaralx.org and get involved in the development effort.

    BTW, noskule: There is a "Scale linewidths" option on the Selector tool's Infobar.
