Fix Rounded Rect Corners-WAIT

While the rounded rectangle tool is handy, it`s not very flexible. Once you`ve created a rectangle with rounded corners, you can`t easily resize the rectangle without distorting the rounded corners. You can scale the rectangle proportionally, but then the corners will have a different radius, which is generally not the desired effect. Or you can sub-select the corner points and drag them to a new position, but that`s also an awkward solution. This command eliminates these problems by fixing distorted rounded corners. After you create a rounded rectangle, adjust the Roundness value to set the corners to the desired size. Then use the Scale tool to freely resize the rectangle, or use the Info panel to change the size numerically. (Just don`t subselect the corners and move them; that will cause this command to stop working.) After resizing the rounded rectangle (and thereby distorting its rounded corners), select it and run this command. The rectangle`s corners will be re-rounded according to their original pixel radius. The Roundness percentage will be different, since the rectangle`s size has changed. You can select more than one rectangle and run this command on all of them. You may find it convenient to assign a keyboard shortcut to the command.
