Hi, I've got a rectangle filled with a pattern. I want to use skew to get the right shape but the pattern won't move with the shape. In illustrator, if you click scale you can choose whether you want to transform the shape or the pattern. Is there any way of being able to move a shape with a pattern around without the pattern moving? 

 

Not currently able to get a picture so if this is an easy fix I would appreciate it. Thank you!

Convert the layer to a Smart Object before transforming.

Hi, thank you this has worked! I may need to move the pattern inside the shape now (i'm lining a pattern up). Is there any way to do this after I have converted the layer to a smart object?
