Making a rounded edge box enlarge with the same corners...

How can I enlarge (or change the size of) a rounded edge rectangle once its been “created”? Whenever I make one bigger or smaller (nb – not rastorised, still a shape) the size of the corners increases, so I end up with a larger box and to scale, larger rounded edges… not much use when I am trying to keep the boxes consistent. I end up having to draw every different size box by hand and then not change the size thereafter.

How do I get round this so I can change the size, without changing the size of the corners – or locking them to their current size/shape regardless of the size/shape of the box?

Use the "direct selection tool" (the "empty" arrow in the toolbar -- A, or shift+A) and select points on only one side of the rectangle (i.e. drag over the four points that define the left side, for example) and then click on any of the selected points and move them as a group -- use shift to constrain the movement. Same with another side (let's say bottom). It's not exactly scaling -- and not very precise either (you'll need guides if accuracy is important) but will not change the corner radii at all.
