Hi. If you round the borders of a TextBox and try different "roundness" values, you can get a perfect circle.

Although, to achieve a properly made front-end I would recommend you to create and design your images in a graphic software and then use them as background of a Button or TextBox object. That's the cleanest and most professional way of dealing with design.

Regards.

Hi.

As mentioned above the common approach is to use an image (or some) as a background and separate textboxes for each 'action point'.

So there is no problem with different actions for 'shapes'.

Hi,

If your concern is getting each shape in your flow chart as a separate image,

On your Windows PC, you can use an imaging tool like the built-in Windows Snipping Tool (or MS Paint) to snip each shape from the powerpoint slide you have created and save it as a separate image.

For example, you could use snipping tool to crop the shape for FO and save it as (say) Image1.jpg. Similarly, you could use the snipping tool again to crop the shape for TP and save it as Image2.jpg and so on.

This way you will have 5 different shapes to use in five different objects which can be assigned five different actions.

It is obvious that, in QlikView, you cannot fully imitate the beauty and customization of shapes possible in tools like (in your case) MS PowerPoint due to the limited scope of customization for a text object - which is where using images/pictures as 'shapes' in text objects comes into picture.

If your requirement is simply to get a decent-looking circle, rhombus, hexagon or a square, you can click here to see different values you could use to customize the text object.

Hope that helps.
