    rounded corners

    mattyman0 Level 1
      I have a rectangle I made with the rectangle tool. If I slice the rectangle using the slice tool the option for the corner roundness goes away. Is there any way around this?

      Thank You

          Apply the roundness before you slice?

              No problem, that's what I thought you meant.

              I created a rectangle, applied a roundness of 25 and then cut it in half
              with the knife without loosing any of the roundness.

                You're not going to be able to retain the roundness option after cutting it, though. That is solely for rectngle shapes.

                What you could do (Fireworks MX 2004+) is use the rounded rectangle auto shape. That shape gives you the option of rounding corners individually (using the ALT key I think). Then you can make two and round the left corners on one and the right corners on the other giving you the same effect as a rounded rectangle cut in two but still retaining editability for the rounded corners.

                  In FW8 it's all doable numerically through the AutoShape Properties
                  panel... quicker and much more precise than dragging control points with
                  the mouse.
