How to use corner tool while being friendly with scaling?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I really like the corner tool and the amazing work it do. However, I find it annoying that the scaling of an object will destroy the intended shape because the rounded corners don't scale with the object, but keep the same!

 

Why not to have an option like the stroke that allows it to be scaled with the shape?

 

I don't want to convert it to curve, I want the corner to have the ability to be changed with the tool :)

 

Thank you, and I hope this will be implemented in the next windows beta :)

Hey, you have to uncheck the "absolute sizes" and then you can set the radius in % which scale with the object. If you need, you can set the radius in px, then uncheck "absolute sizes" and designer recalculate this value to %.

Can you please guide me on how to do that exactly. I couldn't find these options! I am a beginner :)

Hey, sure. Look at the image. I draw 2 rectangles, both have relative size corners set on 25% (as default). You can check "Absolute sizes" to be able to set the pixel range. But with this absolute sizes the corners won't change their radius when resize whole object. Only when using relative sizes (%). Is it clear enough?

Yes clear, but this will worked only with the Rounded Rectangle Tool not the Corner Tool (the fourth tool on the column)!

I need the same option you have shown me but for this "Corner Tool". If it is not exists, how can I ask to put this feature?

Thank you :)
