I want to animate a square to a rectangle while respecting the border radius of the original square. Instead, when I try to change the dimensions of the square, the border radius is skewed. Any ideas?

Hi.

 

If you're on an AS3 document, one way is to convert the rectangle shape into a Movie Clip by calling the Convert to Symbol dialog (Modify > Convert to Symbol... (F8)) and then checking Enable guides for 9-slice scaling before hitting OK.

Another not so obvious approach is to create a rectangle smaller than the size that you want and then scale the stroke until you get the desired dimensions. Both fill and stroke must have the same color.
