Is there a way to rotate a symbol any positive degrees around the y axis? The y axis is here taken as the one perpendicular to the text line and lying in the text surface. E.g., an I would loose its bars with such a rotation of 90 degrees and would be indistinguishable from an O with the same rotation.


Here is a TikZ solution:

\tikz\node[xscale={cos(\angle)},inner sep=0]{Texte};


enter image description here


\foreach \ang in {0,1,...,8,9}{%
  \tikz\node[xscale={cos(\ang*20)},inner sep=0]{RI\ang};%

    Just \tikz\node[xscale={cos(\ang*9.9)},inner sep=0]{TI\ang}; should be sufficient. – percusse Jan 15 '13 at 1:18
  • @percusse Exact! Thanks. I left lines of code related to other tests... – Paul Gaborit Jan 15 '13 at 1:25
  • Ah yes, one can use that quantity in multiple places. – percusse Jan 15 '13 at 1:44
