Illustrator: "the selection contains objects which can't be distorted"-error


Question

I am trying to make a distort effect in illustrator. I use the white arrow, the direct selection tool, I cannot get it to work.

I get an error message:

"the selection contains objects which can't be distorted"

Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Top Objects

Select the picture in the background, and then on the top toolbar hit the "Embed" button:

You can now envelope distort using the method you were trying to use earlier.
