'Percents' option for the Corner Tool

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm sorry if this was posted before. I couldn't find this topic on the forums.

I'd like to have "Radius by percents" for the Corner Tool. I'm currently having this problem where I can't use the Corner Tool with symbols of different size, because when I change the radius of a bigger symbol, its smaller copies get same amount of pixels in corner change, which makes it a dramatic change for a smaller object.

P.S.
Is there a workaround in the meantime?

I believe once you Bake your corner(s) the corners are baked in at a percentage value rather than the shown pixel value

So if you change the radius of a bigger symbol's corner, initially the smaller symbol's corners will look wrong but once you bake the corner on the bigger symbol the smaller symbol's corner will update and will look proportionately correct

Unfortunately Baking is a one time operation, you cannot go back in later to adjust the corner radius easily, so make sure the bigger symbol's corner radius is perfect before you bake it.

Hopefully the Dev Team will add a percentage setting for the Corner Tool in a later update

PS If you are just dealing with corners on rectangular shapes in your symbols, don't use the corner tool just use the shape's own  corner controls which allow both percentage and pixel values to be used.

Hope that helps


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Hey @carl123

Just gave it a try and it worked. It's a good solution for my current needs, but I hope that the radius will change by percents in the future.

I used Corner Tool on custom shapes. I saw that Rounded Rectangle has that "change by percent" feature and that's why I thought that it should be added to the Corner Tool as well.

Anyway, thanks for pointing out that baking solves this problem in one way or another.
