I apologize for such a newbie question but I searched everywhere I promise.  Is it possible to have a shape, with two colors(sections)?  I know I could create two squares and lay one on top of another, and color one differently, but I’m trying to create a rounded rectangle. Best example I could find is attached.  I can’t seem to figure out how to make a separate area at the bottom of this object its own color, have the corners aligned, etc.

@Cass -

Unfortunately, the only way to do this right now would be to overlay one filled in shape on top of another. Miro doesn’t have a “paint can” tool the way painting software does.

Ok understood.  Was having a problem doing that with rounded rectangles and getting the shapes aligned, but I’ll keep working on that part. Thanks much!

@Cass - You’re welcome!

And you would likely want to Group the shapes together once you have them aligned:

Shift + drag to multi-select
