    Hardcore a shapes dimension

    Level 7
      Is there a way to hardcore a width and height to the Rounded Recangle tool,
      so that when you click on the canvas, the shape automatically appears with
      set dimentions. The reason I would like this is because as soons as you
      start resizing the Rounded Rectangle shape, the corners get a bit distorted.

      If you know of a better technique to do this, please let me know.

      Thank you for your help,
      Ricardo

          You could save it as a symbol.

          Open a new document, create your rounded rectangle. Go to
          Modify\Symbol\Convert to Symbol and choose Graphic for the type. Save
          your document and name it rectangle_template (or whatever you like).
          Now, whenever you open that template .png, you can drag the symbol to
          your canvas and it will always be the same.
