Question

I am following this tutorial to get some inspiration:

I used steps from the fourth video to make an object with rounded corners but i have a little issue with this. If i try to make rounded corners with the method used in video I cannot do it.

Also, why do I not see this tool?

you can round any corner using older Version of Illustrator by various ways.

  1. By using Appearance panel choose choose Effect > Stylize > Round Corners
  2. By using a Script called Round Any Corner Created by Hiroyuki Sato.
  3. By using a plugin by Astute Graphics called VectorScrib as sub command called "Dynamic Corners Tool"

enter image description here

  1. by Using the old way as follow
    • Draw you shape;
    • in every corner you want to make it round add one anchor two anchors as show by using Add anchor point tool or just press +

enter image description here

  • delete the corner anchor by selecting it with the white arrow and delete is by selecting Remove selected anchor points from the properties bar. enter image description here
  • we have just chambered the corner, and to make the cure use the Anchor Point Tool or just click Shift + C and select the chambered side and drag it the a reasonable position to give you the desired cure. a perfect curve have an orthographic direction of its handles. that's mean the handels must be extended from the two segments.

  • For Perfect Curvature, make a guide line and snap the handles over it.

That's it
