Skewing Shapes for Isometric Diagramming Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Does Omnigraffle 4 allow you to skew shapes? I want to create an isometric chart, so I want to skew and rotate some boxes, but I can't figure out how.
If you create your boxes using the bezier shape tool, you can make them any shape you like, but OmniGraffle doesn't have a skew tool.

Rotate is in the Properties: Geometry inspector (open it with command-7)
Too bad. Skew would be a great tool. Better yet, isometric grids.
Both skew and isometric grid are on the feature list for version 5. (Can't guarantee they'll be in the eventual product, but we _want_ to do them.)
Greg, did this ever make it into the final release of v5? I'd love to have this functionality but don't see it.

I am missing isometric capabilities sorely.
Can someone confirm the status of this feature?

Any chance that this will be included in some version? Hopefully in one that is going to be released soon.
well i want this tool madly...hope they include it in new version :)
It's been a few years since this thread was started ... is there a chance that it will happen anytime soon?
Jem, we've got the feature request open, and I'll attach your post to that item in the database so the rest of the team will know you'd like to see this added.
The number of customers asking for a given feature is one of the things we look at when planning our work...

(We may add this at some point, but at the moment, there are a number of other requests that customers are telling us they want more often, in other words.)
