Start/End Shear

The Start Shear and End Shear stroke style attributes can be used to shear (or skew) arrowheads on lines within a drawing. Values default to degrees and negative values may be entered.

The Start or End Shear for the Stroke Style of a figure can be altered by clicking on the Stroke Tab in the Sidebar, as shown below.

Note: The Stroke Visibility option must be enabled for a Start/End Shear change to appear in the Drawing Canvas.

To alter the Start/End Shear of a currently selected figure(s) or new figure(s):

Step 1: Click on the figure to make a selection and alter the start/end shear for a single figure or simply change the value within Stroke Tab to change it for all new figures within the drawing.

Step 2: The Start Shear can be used to shear the arrowhead of the Start Line for a line figure. Click on the text field to type in a value or use the “Up” or “Down” Buttons to change the value by 1. In this example, the value has been changed to 25 degrees.

Step 3: The figure will appear as shown below when the Start Shear has been altered.

Step 4: The End Shear can be used to change the shear the arrowhead of the End Line for a line figure. Click on the text field to type in a value or use the “Up” or “Down” Buttons to change the value by 1. In this example, the value has been changed to 25 degrees.

The figure will appear as shown below after both the Start and End Shear values have been changed.
