    I'm relatively new to making signs and I'm basically just doing things for my own use and learning as I go. I am using LXI Master + software which is similar to Flexi and am having a hard time figuring out how to alter the shape of an image. I'm trying to do a "98" from a clipart file and would like it to get bigger from left to right. To be more specific, the left side of the number nine should be 12" high and the right side of the eight should be 17" high. I've been able to do every other thing imaginable (slant, rotate, kern, etc,) but I don't know where to start to get it into the shape I'm looking for. I can't find anything in the manual that even talks about this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    You can use the distortion feature to do what you want.

    Set your "98" at 0 on the Y axis.
    Set horizontal guidelines at 12 and 17
    Select and distort using the Fit distortion tool
