Inclination and perspective

To slant or shear objects, use the red handles located at the midpoint of an edge of the selected objects. The mouse pointer changes to a Image:ShearPointer.png when the pointer hovers over one of these midpoint handles. Not every object can be slanted—basic shapes can be rotated but not slanted.

The slant axis is the point directly opposite the midpoint handle to be used for shearing the object. This point stays fixed in location; the other sides and edges move in relation to it as the mouse is dragged (make sure that the Image:ShearPointer.png handle icon is showing before dragging).

As with rotation, you can set the inclination to occur as steps of 15° by pressing the Shift key while moving the handle.
