          If you want hide one side of the rounded, try these methods:

          Option 1:
          - Select Rectangle object, add a Layer Mask, activate the Layer Mask Thumbnail, THEN use the Marquee draw what area you want to hide. To Hide paint with Black.

          Option 2:
          - Draw a non-rounded rectangle ABOVE the rounded rectangle object. Select both of them, then, Modify > Combine Paths > Punch.

          There are other ways, but they should get you there.

            Use the Rounded rectangle vector shape to draw the rectangle. Adjust two
            of the corners either in the Auto Shape Properties panel, or by pressing
            Alt and adjusting the corners manually.

              i seemed to have gotten the grouping to work, it diddnt yesterday for some reason.

              but the gradiants are still separate, let me try some of your other suggestions
