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!)

Colors

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 with the border radius!
