Complex Profile - Angled Stretch

Hi all,

Is there a way to make an angled edge in a Complex Profile stretch diagonally so that it retains it's angle when the profile itself is stretch. At the moment, angles change when a profile is stretched as the line is read as a connection between two points rather than a vector.

I feel like you cannot, but I figured I would ask here anyway...

Not with a standard complex profile.
If the angled edge is within the horizontal/vertical stretch zones then the angle will alter when the profile height/width is changed.
If it is not in the stretch zone then it will stay as it is and possibly move with the height/width change - depending if it is on the same side of the stretch zone that you are changing the height/width for.

However in 22 we now have complex profile modifiers.
So you can create a modifier to move the angled edge (it still needs to be outside of the horizontal/vertical stretch zones.

Have a look at some of the complex profiles that come with the default 22 template.

Ah... I did not think of using the Complex Profile Modifiers in this situation. Works perfectly.



Thanks,
