Adding a Rounded Rectangle

To add a rectangle with rounded corners to the plan view:

1.   Click the Plan tab to switch to the Plan view.

2.   Click the Add Rounded Rectangle button that is found near the top of the screen under the Plan Detail tab.

3.   Click an area of your landscape design to place the first corner of the rounded rectangle.

4.   Optional: Hold Shift to constrain the shape to a square.

5.   Click another area of your landscape design to place the opposite corner of the rounded rectangle. If you would like to input the distance and angle manually, place the starting point and then press the Enter key.

6.   Move your mouse to adjust the radius of the rectangle’s corners and click the left mouse button when the desired radius is shown. It is usually best to turn off grid-snap for this step.

Tips:

      The steps above are only used when first adding the rounded rectangle. Once the rectangle is added to your design it can be edited as needed. See Editing Points for more information.

      The shape of the rounded rectangle will be filled by default. To show just the rectangle’s outline, set the Transparency property to 100.

      The corners of any shape can be rounded using the Round Corners tool.

      All plan detail objects can only be added and viewed in the Plan view, unlike other objects that are compatible with all views. See Adding Plan Detail for more information.
