InDesign CC 2018 Tip:

Corners on InDesign Paragraph Shading and Borders
Adobe have also added the ability to set the corner size and shape to your InDesign paragraph shading and your borders, so rather than square edges at the end of your InDesign paragraph shading you can have nice curves. You can even set each corner of your paragraph shading and border independently, so each corner can be different!
