- Shear[ <Object>, <Line>, <Ratio> ]
- Shears the object so that

- points on the line stay fixed.
- points at distance
*d*from the line are shifted by*d \cdot ratio*in direction of the line (direction of the shift is different for halfplanes with respect to the line).

A sheared plane figure maintains its original area.
