Rounded Rectangle

Click the Draw | Shape | Rounded Rectangle command to create a rounded rectangle or square in the document.


Rounded Rectangle Properties

Rounded rectangles contain two types of properties: line properties and fill properties. You can change these properties in the Property Manager.


Drawing a Rounded Rectangle

To draw a rounded rectangle:

  1. Select the Draw | Shape | Rounded Rectangle command to enter drawing mode and begin drawing a rounded rectangle.

  2. Press and hold the left mouse button at one corner of the rounded rectangle.
