when???


Before you leap, you must look.

Before you look, you must think.

Before you think, you must feel!

Before you feel, you must--

 

 I've had enough!

I've watched that video OVER AND OVER now and can't for the life of me figure out how you're getting the UP/DOWN arrow when on the RIGHT edge of the selected object! No matter what I do, all I ever get is a LEFT/RIGHT arrow for SCALING! This is SO frustrating. Fighting to get something so BASIC done! What am I missing??! How do I move (skew) the right edge of a selected object UP AND DOWN??

You can skew in the Transform Studio, I agree with you that the little arrows are very fickle.

It can be tricky, but I usually have no trouble getting it to appear if I bring the pointer in from outside the selection, slowing down as it gets near the side handle so I won't overshoot the 'sweet spot' where it works. It also seems to help to move the pointer along a line that would extend through the opposite control handle rather than obliquely to it.

The trouble is, you can only specify a horizontal shear/skew amount via the Transform panel. To achieve vertical skew, you need to apply a combination of rotation and horizontal skew.

Oh for :70_poop:s sake… no kidding! Thanks! I would NEVER have suspected it OUTSIDE of the object boundaries. :32_expressionless: It would actually make FAR more sense to simply put it on a modification key! Scale without anything, SKEW with e.g. OPTION or even COMMAND or whatever.

 

Cheers.

Both those modifier keys already are used with the Shear function, Option to ignore snapping & CMD to shear about the center of the object.
