Ive been away from LW for a while now and im attempting to re-learn it..
Anyway, one thing thats really annoying me is this, if I have a line which i want to bevel, say a window frame.. Then Im having to bevel then connect the corners manually... Surely there is a tool which does this? If so? What tool?!?
heres an example of what i begin with and what Im after at the end of it..
Cheers for all help

Try multi shift with group polygons on.

Superb!!
I knew it was something simple, I tried multi shift but...
No group ploygons! So it was useless

Thank you ?Bill Carey, you just saved me around 6 mths of time!

No multishift was never useless, the way you approached it was :) since the option to use multishift with grouped polygons was there.
You can also use smooth shift that deals with multipolygons, or simpley extend "2"

Unfortunatly the newer tools like tweak extend doesn´t have a group option, I hope they can improve that one, and perhaps even improve bevel with an option to group, though I think there may be other free bevel plugins that does that too.
