Default Perspective Tool, Bulk, but independant?

Hi All,
I don't think this is possible, but thought I'd see if there's a workaround...

I'm making my own Windows Icon images, and I'd like to apply Perspective to a big group of items. I need each one to have its own perspective though, rather than applying shear to the group as a single whole...

I want to get the effect shown in the top of the image, not the one shown on the bottom....


Any ideas? Thanks.

Well, I'm guessing that this isn't possible...
I did find a way to expedite the process a little bit...
(see attached gif)

You can tear off the 'Perspectives Preset' dropdown, then with a little practice you'll have a two-click solution.

Notes: You still have to do them one at a time, and they have to be grouped (can't be multiple selected items.)

FYI: The bottom parts of the folders were on a different layer, and thus out of my way.

hmmm let's try this animated gif again....

EDIT: Sorry about that, folks. My animated gif keeps getting converted to a jpeg.

Anyhoo... When you click the Perspective Tool on the left toolbar, a context toolbar for the PT appears at the top. That is where the tear-offable dropdown is.

You could fool the forum by using APNG.

I didn't know there was any issue with animated GIF.

I forgot to reply to your post earlier, after testing it, and not finding any solution to the perspective issue it needs several improvements.
