  • Select Frame 25 in the Timeline
  • Deselect the rectangle by clicking elsewhere on the stage off the rectangle
  • Bring the cursor pointer close to the edge of the rectangle until the cursor changes to a curved-tail pointer – i.e. pointer with a ).
  • Click and drag the edge of the rectangle in or out.
  • Do this a few more times until you like the shape you’ve created.


  • Set shape tweening for the two spans:
    • Click Frame 1,
