Group the large rectangle and the smaller modified rectangles.

Place the left highlight shape over the group.

Select the group then select the Mould Tool (Shift F6). Apply a Default Envelope.

    NOTE: There are two categories of envelopes. The first set of envelopes apply a curved side when edited. The second set are "straight sided" envelopes and with these, the edited sides are straight.

Edit the group of modified rectangles to more or less the shape of the highlight. It does not have to be exact and a bit wider is fine.

Right click on the enveloped group and select Create Bitmap Copy...

Set the Color Depth to True Color and in the Bitmap Size tabbed section, set the Resolution to 300dpi.
