Default Resizing rectangle without rescaling

I work often with rounded rectangles in my diagrams. I find, however, when I resize a rectangle, the corners become stretched, and the scalable outline becomes thicker/thinner on the bottom than on the sides...

So, I wanted to create a simple VBA macro that would fix my rounded corners -- essentially unscale the rectangle, and resize it properly without scaling. Theoretically, if I did that, the corners would return to their proper rounded radius.

The problem is, I can't seem to do it. All of the sizing options for shapes/rectangles seem to apply a scale. Is there any way to do this without creating a new rectangle?

Default Rectangle Fixer

Several macros for this have been written. Here is one for you to look at:

Thanks for the reply. I didn't want to create a duplicate, as I often have connectors or text associated with the rectangle, and they are not connected to the duplicate. I suppose I can try to search for these and reassociate them in my macro.
