    How Do I distort just the bottom half of text and keep the top half of text flat?

    You need to convert the text to a vector object. In Illustrator it's called "converting to outline" I can't remember what it's called in CD

      Actually, for Corel... you don't. You just use the envelope distortion tools and the text remains 'live' and editable.

        In Illustrator CS5, select the text with the direct selection tool, then from the menu bar choose Effect > Distort and Transform > Free Distort…

        What you get is a proxy with four points at the corners of the bounding box. Kinda simple, but the text stays editable.

        Or, from the menu bar, choose Object > Envelope Distort > (choose an option).

        Make sure you read the help first, work on a copy of your file, and don't forget to expand the art when you're finally approved.

        This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

          Hi Miss and welcome to GDF.

          You could look into Lynda.com. My library membership includes a free subscription, maybe yours does too? If not the monthly subscription fee is pretty affordable....

          Lynda.com has a bunch of courses and tutorials. However it would be a monthly fee to subscribe to lynda.com and based on your Adobe post it doesn't sound like you want a monthly commitment.

          You could buy the CS6 version. I'm not sure if Adobe still offers that on their website but you might find it on eBay or Amazon.

          The line weight is still too thin and fragile looking. They appear grayed out like something is missing. It's fine to use some gray but it is a bit too weak. How are you going to print gray? A spot color?...

          Only you are noticing the line weights because you did them. They are not varied and heavy enough. Make a copy and try it with different line weights that are heavier and even variable.
