How to skew a rectangle?



Could someone clarify if it´s possible to skew a rectangle in Axure RP?

The Widget Style Manager don´t has CSS transforms and I can´t import custom stylesheets to my project.

Best regards


Hi! There isn’t a “skew” feature per say, but if you need something beyond rotation, flipping, and adjusting a widget’s width/height, then you can right-click a widget and choose “Convert to Custom Shape”; this will allow you more control as you edit the now-custom shape.

There are also a few transformations that may come in handy:

Hopefully that helps a bit!


Yes, Alyssa, it helps! Thank you!

But I had to mess with “point” because my context menu didn´t show the “convert to custom shape” option.
Notice that I am using Axure RP 9. This options was removed from context menu?

Best regards,



Hi Thiago!

The “Edit Points” option has replaced “Convert to Custom Shape” in Axure RP 9. You can find the “Edit Points” option in the context menu by right-clicking on your shape widget.


In addition, you can click along the border of the widget to enter point-editing mode directly! Your cursor will change to the point tool when you’re along the widget’s border.


Nice, Chelsea and Rachel!

Thanks for your help :wink:
