    In Ued 1 there used to be a sheer brush button. It was quite practical sometimes. How can I sheer a brush in Ued 2?

    No.

    You can only move the sides of the brush prallel. It will affect the whole brush.

    type this into the command box in UED:
    Code:
    Mode facedrag
    
    It is quite useful for cubes and stuff but for complex brushes it is difficult to use. It also has different effects depending on where you drag in relation to the brush
    eg. I think that if you drag in the middle of the brush, it scales the brush up and down.
    If you drag sideways above the brush, it sill skew it to the side

    I personally prefere vertex edit mode for skewing brushes anyway, it's a lot quicker and easier to use.

    yeah, guess vertex editing is okay for this. Facedrag is an interesting option, which I tested recently

    Quite often, I go into the brush properties-->mainscale and set the skewing direction and amount in there. Make sure you transform the brush permanently afterwards tho or you'll find it disappears in the ed if you zoom in too close.
