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