Problem: I have created a box with the Rectangle Tool and given it rounded corners. I now want to square off the bottom corners of the rectangle whilst retaining the top rounded corners. When I select the Direct Selection Tool I still get corner handles and I can't seem to add new points on the path. The rounded edges just seem only to want to reduce in size. I always assumed that by slecting the DS Tool I would be able to access the path without corner points appearing?
I first experienced this problem last year (I don't need to perform this task very often) and although I received helpful responses, no one seemed to be able to reproduce and thus answer my problem. If any one can help me with this I would be most grateful. Here is a screen capture with the DS Tool selected object:
I have just drawn a path with the Pen Tool which I can edit without corner handles appearing so maybe it is simply that the option to edit a box path in this way is not available in InDesign?
I know that in QXP you could go Item>Shape>select the palette shape and the path became editable even with Quark's clunky drawing tools.
Okay. Sorry. You go Paths>Object>Open paths. Sorry if I wasted anyone's time.
Go to Object > Corner Options... and you can set the options for each corner independently.
