Change a rectangle to a trapezoid?

Recommended Posts

Try "Rotate/Zoom". It's located in the Layers menu, or use Ctrl+Shift+Z.

It's awesome - one of the best things about this program. :-)

Or, you could take a look at MKT's Shape3D plugin.

Hope this helps!

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

As D.A stated, try going to Layers > Rotate/Zoom.

You could also try using evanolds' Octagonal/Quad reshape/matte plugin using the 'Reshape' options.

Both will do what you are looking for with varying levels of success...

If you are looking to be able to 'draw' trapezoid shapes, aphillips has written some modifications to the Paint.NET source code, allowing for some pretty cool drawing options...
