When I draw some line shape using Pen tool and fill it, it has sharp borders. How can I apply border radius to them to make them look like this image?

enter image description here

I can see the border radius option in the rectangle tool but cannot find when using Pen tool.

Using the Pen Tool to make a shape, after making the line there are shape options at the top menu.

At the Stroke Options, choose Caps: rounded

Top menu options

Rounded caps

The Pen tool is all manual and you can basicly draw anything, including rounded rectangles, but that's only manual drawing line by line. For this particular purpose there is the Rounded Rectangle tool.

  • Thanks for the answer. I understand that I can do it using Rounded Rectangle Tool but I want to draw a random line (like a wage), that's using pen tool.
