How to get outlines for Arc object after using Envelope Distort in Illustrator?


Question

I need to arc a vector logo in illustrator so it matches a curve. But I need the outlines. I don't want a "mesh" as one object, because it goes to plotter to plot on vinyl.

I used Envelope Distort > Make with Warp > Arc. It does what I need but I get the "mesh" not the outlines.

How do I get outlines after using an Envelope Distort on something?

Accepted Answer

Select the Envelope object and then choose Object > Expand from the menu.

This "bakes in" the envelope distortion, expanding shapes to their actual outlines after the distortion.
