Hi all

I'm using AI CS2 on an XP PC.

I am trying to add perspective to an object. I select the image, then
the Free Transform Tool, then I start to drag the bounding box, then
finally, I press Ctrl-Alt-Shift (as it says in the help).

However, regardless of what I let go of first (the keys or the mouse
button) the object reverts back to its original size.

What am I doing wrong? It's driving me mad! I have searched this and
other forums but no luck.

Please help!

Many thanks
