    Default How do I bend a rectangle?

    If you check out the attached it looks easy since it's all rectangles. I get that but can't figure out how to bend the rectangles. Anybody got an Idea? Thanks.

    Hi..you will surely get your answer but the first thing you do is to make your attachments visible for us. I think you didn't know that your attachments are not visible for us so without making it visible you cant get your solution.

    without the attachment it's guesswork - but mould tool is a possibility - or if the rectangles are editable shapes then using the shape tool to manipulate nodes

    I think the image is attached, but its quite small.

    You could try using the grid to control and measure the extent and positioning of the node handles when bending the curves. Draw one side, clone, flip and add shape.

    possibly, but I am not sure I can square [sorry] that with the statement "it's all rectangles"

    Create rectangle
    Right click (or Arrange) > Convert To Editable Shape
    Select Shape Tool (F4)
    Bend the rectangle edges

    Create a box.
    Use that for an Art Brush.
    Draw a line and remove all nodes save start and end.
    Bend the resultant rectangle with the Shape tool.

    You obviously need a Xara Desktop application that allows Art Brush creation.
