Rectangle Style

At the moment, we offer one rectangle style: Choose the "Card" style to add a drop shadow to your element. (Stay tuned for more styles!)


There are two color fields, with which you can define the border and fill color for this element.

Border Radius

With the border radius setting, you can create rectangles with rounded edges or circles. Use the slider to change the radius of the edges.

You can also create circles by using the maximum available border radius!

Border Width

With the border width setting, you can decide how wide the border of your rectangle should be. The border is positioned centered, so it will grow towards the in- and outside.
