Width and height
Those properties allow changing the size of the button, once hovering on the letter W (width) or H (height) should appear a left-right arrow which allows dragging to the desired size, click and drag, and release after the perfect size is reached.
Alternatively pressing on the number close to W or H letters will allow entering the desired size in px (pixel).
Once the lock icon is pressed it will change to a locked one, this means that when the button will change size it will change proportionally.
Stretch to Width
Clicking this property will set the video to 100% which is equal to the width of the browser window.
Once dragging or typing another value, video transparency will change accordingly, it could be from 0 to 100.
Rotation, corner radius
Once hovering on the angle icon should appear a left-right arrow that allows dragging to the desired radius, click and drag, and release after the ideal angle was reached.
Right drag - rectangle will rotate in the right (positive value) direction, left drag - it will rotate to the left (negative value).
Alternatively pressing on the number will allow typing the exact degree amount.
The corner radius works in the same way as the angle, but once the action performs it will change the radius.
It could be combined with rotation.
Pressing the icon that indicates corners on the right side just close to the corner radius will allow changing the radius per corner
The order is:
- Top right corner
- Bottom right corner
- Bottom left corner
- Top left corner
