Are all parallelograms "right-leaning"?

Recommended Posts

When using the parallelogram, I've noticed that regardless of the click sequence, all parallelograms (shape tool) seem to be right-handed only. That is, when the first click is on the bottom left or top right, both points selected are on the parallelogram because the parallelogram itself has the "up-and-to-the-left" angling. Starting the first click on the top left or bottom right creates a similar parallelogram, but this time the points selected are "floating".


I know I can flip/rotate, etc., but just wondered if this is by design?

I intuitively would have expected that the clicks always end up on the shape, so that starting on the top left or bottom right would create a left-handed parallelogram.


(Note in the image below, that when trying to create left-handed parallelograms, both clicks are "floating" and are not on the shape.


Kevininspace... yup, in space.

Yes, it's how that shape is defined.


The points may appear to be floating outside the shape; they're on the bounding rectangle.


If you'd like, you can create your own custom shapes.
