    I'm praying for a skew tool in FLASH 5! Yes, I do the rotate/resize trick sometimes too. Best I can suggest is to COPY/PASTE the graphic into Illustrator or another vector program, do your skew there, and bring it back. sigh....

    Would love an automatic dropshadow, too!

    Skew in Flash

    Thanks I just thought I might be missing something. I would place on my wish list all the toys in Fireworks I love that program but it still has some limits. But Drop Shadow Perspective Shadow..... things like that would add so much more. The effect that I am trying to achieve is a Perspective shadow of text with the light source from behind moving behind the text and the shadow of the text in front. It would be so easy with a Skew!

    Maybe some day

    Smile You can skew!

    Rotate your text or graphic
    Place in a movie clip
    Stretch this clip along the x axis
    Rotate back to original point
    You may need to do the last part by eye alone!


    That should do it! :-)
