Illustrator or InDesign do that with an automatic feature. It’s a rectangle with a stroke and inset rounded corners. I’m not sure what other software will do it, but you could do a search online for Powerpoint inset corners

I’m not sure in PowerPoint. What software are you in?

This might vary depending on which version of Illustrator you’re using, but draw a rectangle and then go to Windows > Brush Libraries > Borders_Lines. This should bring up a pop-up window along the side that has an option for the indented corners you’re looking for. Make sure your rectangle is selected, and then select the option you want. It *should* automatically change the shape.

@francypants: I just thought of something else! In case you want to change the color of the shape once a brush stroke is applied, go to the “Brushes” tab/window and click on the icon that looks like a paintbrush with two little sliders next to it. It’ll bring up a “Stroke Options” window. Go to the “Colorization” drop-down menu and select “Tints and Shades.” This should allow you to change the color by clicking on the color swatches. It took me a while to figure out how to do this, so thought I would share to save you the headache. 🙂 Good luck!

ETA: Right now I’m using Illustrator CS2, so it is a slightly older version…
