Chapter 4. Text Input > To skew text:

To skew text:

1.
Choose the Item or Content tool.

2.
Click on any shaped text box. You can only skew one item at a time.

3.
Choose Item > Modify (Cmd-M/Ctrl-M), then click the Box tab.

4.
Enter a Skew value between -75 and 75. Enter a positive number to skew to the right or a negative number to skew to the left. The higher the skew value, the more distorted—and thus the less legible—the text will be.

5.
Click OK . You can edit the skewed text. To undo the skew, make the Skew value 0.
