View Full Version : Rounded Rectangle warps corners on transform (CS3)

When you drag to resize a rounded rectangle, it warps the corners without keeping the aspect (ie the curve becomes one-sided towards the longest sides) – I have seen rounded rectangles keep their corners before and just elongate the side path, why does it do this now, I must be missing something?
You are "transforming" the image as an 'image' not a vectored shape.
Transforming is merely stretching. This will change the radius of corners.
If you select the whole rectangle, and stretch, the round corners will
The only way to change the aspect ratio of your rectangle, is to create the shape as a vector object, then select ONLY the four anchor points which delineate the two corners you intend to drag to make the rect bigger.

This way, you're MOVING anchor points, NOT TRANSFORMING.
This is a well known rule to all Illustrator users since QuickDraw and PostScript vector anchors were first introduced in the mid 1980s.
