Description Stanislav Horacek 2016-05-04 19:42:33 UTC
1. In Writer, choose "Rectangle, Rounded" on the Drawing toolbar.
2. Draw a rectangle. You will see a yellow point near its corner - you can adjust the corner radius by dragging it.
3. In context menu of the rectangle, choose "Position and Size" and go to the "Slant & Corner Radius" tab. The "Radius" field is disabled and the radius cannot be set by a value.

The UI for radius has been disabled for rectangles because it was not preserved after document reopen (see bug 39907) - but this seems not to be the case.

Tested in 5.0.5 and 5.1.2, Ubuntu 15.10.

Confirmed "me too"
Window 10 x64,
If you use the "Basic shapes" version you can only drag, but not enter the value.
You have to use View -> Toolbars -> Legacy rectangles to get one where you can enter the exact value, which is quite often needed.

With my Libo 5, i just updated old documents, and tried to create new rounded rectangle... And i discovered that the radius field is disabled.
I loosed time to understand the issue.

In fact, olds documents contains "draw:rect" in content.xml, and new "rectangle" (round or not) are create with "draw:custom-shape".
The manual adjustment of the rounding is not possible for my need.
my soluce : copy and paste my old shapes, what a mess

(tested with libo 5.3 - windows 10)

A quick manual basic rounded rectangle create a soup of content like that :

Give back simple "<draw:rect/>"
