You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Rounded borders

Simple, but nice.  You can now create rounded borders for visuals - here are a few examples:

Rounding examples

Four examples, showing 0, 10, 20 and 30 degree (the maximum allowed) rounding.

To set rounding, use the Border formatting tab:

Setting rounding

You can set rounding to any number between 0 and 30.

 

I'd vote for a subtle 10 degree rounding, I think, but you can choose whatever floats your boat!
