I want to draw a trapezoid with rounded corners in Adobe XD. I want to give it a blur and design a soft UI (neumorphism) with it.

How can I draw a trapezoid with rounded corners in Adobe XD?

  • What I was referring to is the geometric shape. In the meantime, I thought of drawing a triangle and a rectangle, and subtracting the rectangle from the triangle. (I will update the title). Thank you @usr2564301. – Marco Jan 29 '20 at 12:03

Adobe XD is not the best tool when it comes to drawing custom shapes. Once you drag an anchor point from a rectangle you lose the ability to adjust the corner radius.

What you can do is to draw a rectangle, drag the anchors until you get a trapezoid and add a border with the same color as the fill. Set Outer Stroke and Round Join.

You control the corner radius by adjusting the border thickness.


  • What would be the best tool? Something like Adobe Illustrator? – Marco Jan 29 '20 at 13:52
  • @Marco if you already have the Adobe package might as well use Illustrator, you have much more control. I just noticed on Figma you can adjust corner radius after altering the rectangle into a trapezoid. It all depends on your needs / skills. – Luciano Jan 29 '20 at 13:56
  • OK @Luciano, thank you for your helpful answer! – Marco Jan 29 '20 at 14:01
