  1. Is there anyway to shrink one half of a layer? Similar to taking a square that's been converted to curves and reshaping it into a trapezoid, can something like this be done with a layer to resize the contents of the layer such that one end is resized while the other remains the same? Specifically, I've created a brick wall pattern with rectangles. All the rectangles are in the same layer. But now I would like to make a perspective effect with the lower bricks being smaller and the upper bricks being larger. Manually resizing each brick would certainly be a hassle and it would be nice if I could just resize the entire layer at once such that all the rectangular bricks become trapezoids of the appropriate sizes. Is there a simple way of doing this? Thanks!
  2. Got it. Thanks for the quick reply! Is there any work around? I would think there must be a way to covert the trapezoids to curves in some way that the curves forget all information about being trapezoids and can then still be properly removed. Is there such a way? Or do I just have to play with the curves for a while until they happen to work out?
  3. I created a simple document with 3 trapezoids (one big and two small). When I try to subtract the small ones from the large one, the angles of the subtracted trapezoids changes so that it takes out the wrong chunks. Trying to convert everything to curves beforehand does not seem to fix the problem. I'm not sure if the subtraction performs some extra calculation that it is suppose to that I just don't know about and perhaps I just need to approach this differently. Is this the case? Or am I doing something else wrong? Or is this some sort of bug? Attached are pictures showing before and after subtraction. Thanks for the time!
