- Let's take a look at the Live Shape Properties.…I'm going to begin by drawing a rectangle,…which I'll constrain to a square…by holding down the Shift key.…On my Live Shape Properties panel,…I can scrub over the width or the height…to change the size of that shape.…Currently the two are linked together.…If I unlink them, then I can change either…dimension independently.…I can also…move the shape by changing…the X and/or the Y coordinate.…
I can change the corners.…If I want to link the corners together,…I'll make sure that the link is clicked on,…and I can make that into a rounded rectangle.…If I click on the link again,…I can then change any of those corners independently.…In addition, on the Live Shape Properties panel,…we have the Fill, the Stroke, the Stroke Weight.…These properties we can also apply…to other shapes that are not considered Live Shapes,…like polygons.…
Let me draw a polygon and we'll see how…its Properties panel looks different.…So there's my star and you'll see…that we don't have those same corner options…
