Hi, I'm using cs5 illustrator on windows7.  When I use the rectangle tool  it comes out skewed which is neat...but now I want the normal rectangles to create with. Where is the option to toggle skewing shapes to normal?  Thanks.  I'm still new to cs5.

Looks like youre drawing on a perspective grid. You could use View > Perspective Grid > Hide Perspective grid

While working with the Perspective Grid, you can press the number 4 key  or  click in the circle outside the cube in the perspective widget to draw off the grid.
