    Hi
    Is there a completely accurate way to remove a rounded corner to make it a 90° angle with no corner effect, leaving the other rounded corners rounded? Convert direction point tool on the corner, manually adjusting the handles is not right I'm sure.
    Would appreciate your help on this one. Ta.

    If you hold the shift button down while using the tool it should snap to either the horizontal or vertical... mind you, I'm no InDesign expert.

    In Quark, after setting up some guides, I tend to carve away at boxes using the merge (exclude) command to get more or less what I want, then refine it with the handles. A similar technique would work in InDesign — it's not elegant but it sure works.

    Yes, thanks BV.
    Shift holds one side straight and the other needs careful adjusting. Just thought there would have been a shortcut. Sweet.
    Have lots of fun at the picnic - its FREZZING here, in a North Island sort of way.
