All I seem to be able to do is perform horizontal shears:

Syntax 1,

 

Have you tried setting the angle to 90 degrees, to the left, at the exclamation mark in your screenshot?

For vertical Shear you can use top control panel instead of Transform panel

Object>Transform>Shear.

Thank you!

yes, it's possible

 

1. rotate your object 90 degrees (button next to shear)

2. shear 30 degrees horizontally

3. rotate -90 back to it's original position

Very long and counterproductive workaround, but it works! Thanks! 🤗 Hopefully Adobe will fix this nonsense in the near future. Have a nice one! Rock on!

thanks, you too

 

if you shear stuff at fixed angles all the time you know you could record Actions right? that would apply the shearing with one click or one keystroke, even the 3 step I described above
