    Default Re: Image and text skewing / distorting megathread

    ... I still have issues in my setup:
    Macbook pro
    running Parallels Desktop 16, windows 10 and Xara 18.

    The ALT (option) Key does not "flip/toggles" between stretch & scale - it only "crops" images.
    Click image for larger version.

    I think that behaviour was modified in version 18 when the new blue/white dashed bounding boxes were introduced

    I have those switched out and it seems to wok for me, provded the show selection bounds handles button is active

    So hopefully someone else can help

    [Actually at the moment I am using version 15.1 most of the time because of a totally unrelated issue with PDF import]

    I’m well behind on this thread, but it did answer my question regarding text boxes which I use a lot. By user error I was skewing large text blocks. I made the text block, rotated the block, then somehow the block started skewing. The block was very large point size.
    This happened a few times, and I just couldn’t figure out why. Think I must have double clicked the text block. Or something. . I’m a senior so entitled.
