Another great feature in Illustrator CC that comes with the update we released today is called Live Corners. This feature is all about controlling the shape of corners. It makes easier to change all corners, or just one, by altering the direction and amount of the curve.
The first thing you should know is how to access this tool: using the Direct Selection Tool (A) select the object/objects you want to edit. You should see inside of each corner a small double circle icon.
If you don’t see these icons click on the View menu and then on Show Corner Widget.
If you drag any one of these icons (I highlighted them in the picture above) you are going to change all the corners with the same curve. Here is one example:
If you want to change only one corner, deselect your object and with the Direct Selection tool still the current tool click directly on the corner you want to change. Only one Live Corners icon should appear, just for that corner. Next, you can drag that icon to affect only the selected corner.
Finally, you can also change the direction/type of the curve. One way to do this is to hold on the Alt key while clicking on one of the Live Corners icons. This will let you choose between rounded corners (the default option), inverted rounded corner, or chamfer. Here you can see the difference between inverted rounded corner and chamfer:
You can access the same functionality if you click on the Corners option from the control panel or double-click on one of the Live Corners icons.
Finally, you can edit the corners for multiple objects at the same time. In the next image I have four squares. I selected with the Direct Selection tool all four of them and then I changed the corner by dragging one of the Live Corners icons. When I released all the corners of the selected objects were changed the same way.
Enjoy this new feature and let us know what else you would you like to see added to Illustrator CC.
