Typically if I need to round the corners of a shape I just type in the numbers in the Corner Rounding tool box at the top of the page. Ever since I re-installed corel onto my new PC the "Rectangle: Corner Rounding Tool" pops up when I try to simply grab a node in the corner of a rectangle shape. If I convert the rectangle to curves then it just switches my point tool to the shape tool - still not easily letting me grab the node in the corner (or wherever the node is)
Anyone know how to fix this?
I'm simply trying to move an object in it's whole without editing the shape. I use nodes to snap to guidelines or each other to set up documents to engrave brass plates and such. I need the shapes within my workspace to remain their proper size while I move them around so that the size represents the object I am engraving accurately. I hope this clarifies any confusion.
Those nodes are for quick rounding of corners when it's still a rectangle. If you want to grab a node you have to convert it to curves then with shape tool grab nodes and do as you wish
not trying to grab a node to edit the shape with the shape tool. I'm trying to grab the node with the pointer tool so I can move the entire object and snap it to other nodes without the object that I'm moving changing shape. If that makes sense.. lol
Tap the space bar before you try to move it. It soulds like you are trying to move the box with the shape tool.
I have the point tool selected and it changes to the shape tool when I hover over a node. I have to zoom in in order for the pointer tool to switch back so I can move the entire object itself (not editing the shape).
you don't need to select a node or even hover anywhere near a node to grab and move a shape. If it's filled you can grab it anywhere. If it's not filled you can grab it from anywhere on the outline. Unless of course you're one of those that leaves the "Treat as Filled" option on all the time.
