Converting Rounded Corners to Editable Paths
on Feb 22, 2015 at 7:38:09 am

I'm curious if there is an easy way to convert rounded corners (Stylize > Round Corners) to an editable path.

I would like to be able to adjust/edit the rounding points after I've performed the effect on a shape.

Thanks to anyone with some insight.

Cheers, Eric

There is indeed an easy way to convert your rounded corners ("Stylize > Round Corners...") to an editable path.

Once you are happy with the effect, go to "Object > Expand Appearance". Done.

If you are using the new rounded corners by dragging the little circle inside the corner of Illustrator CC versions, you go to "Object > Expand..." select all the check boxes and click OK, then ungroup the result and delete the objects you do not want.
