  • How Do I

    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.
