:confused: Probably I have to study the Rotate parameter of the Shape meters, because I'm not familiar with it, for me the TransformationMatrix is much - much easier. :confused:

It's like Rotator, more or less.

Yeah, you are right about my [m360] measure balala (I modded it right before posting, and it's not the way I usually change directions... my bad! ;-) )

Yes, I agree with you fonpaola! I think the SHAPE METER Rotate, Scale, and Skew parameters are much easier to understand.

My compliments to balala on his comments to implement TransformationMatrix code; without seeing his solutions, I would never be able to begin to grasp it. :17good

Are you talking about the Rotate parameter?

Yes, I've tried both, and they look quite similar if not equal.

I'm sorry, but to be honest, I don't think I fully understand what are you talking about. What have you tried? The Rotate parameter (take care it's Rotate, not Rotator, as you've wrote and which is a meter type) of the Shape meter and the TransformationMatrix?
