Hello there, I'm working on a Game UI which I've assembled in Photoshop and Illustrator over the last year.

 

I'm looking now to build the UI in Xd - Quick question here: Is it possible to make a rectangle with slanted corners like this (border radius 4px) I know I can draw it in Illustrator, but I would like to have a rectangle which I can scale and stretch where the corners remain the same.

You can use the new Border Bevel Join feature. An 8px border should give you a 4px corner. See gif: https://imgur.com/a/FLreHfyAlso, you can create a Path and marquee select multiple points to effectively change width and height of an object without affecting the shape of the corners.

 I make linear corners by:

1. round the corners as normal

2. double-click the square to enter edit mode

3. double-click the rounded corners points to change their interpolation from bezier to linear.
