A4: To divide a type container into smaller containers, select the container and choose Type > Rows & Columns. In the Rows & Columns dialog box, enter the number of horizontal or vertical containers, or both, into which you'll divide the container, their size, and the space between each container.
5:How do you create type that follows the shape of a path or an object?
A5: You can use the path type tool () to type words along an existing path. You can also wrap a block of type around an object by selecting the type and the object and choosing Type > Wrap > Make. (The object must be in front of the type.)
6:What is a reason for converting type to outlines?
A6: To create a PDF version of an Illustrator file for online viewing, you choose File > Save a Copy; then for format or type, you select Adobe PDF.
7:How do you create a type mask?
A7: Convert type to outlines when you want to transform (scale, reshape, and so on) letters individually in the word or block of type. Outlines are also useful for filling type with a gradient fill.
8:How do you create an envelope effect? How do you edit the effect?
A8: One way to create a type mask is to select the type that you want to be the mask, and select the object, bitmap image, or type that you want to show through the mask. (The masking type must be in front of any other objects.) Then choose Object > Clipping Mask > Make to create the type mask.
9:How do you create a PDF version of an Illustrator document for online viewing?
A9: You create an envelope by selecting an object and then applying a preset warp shape or mesh using the Object > Envelope Distort > Make With Warp or Make With Mesh command. You can also select a top object that will act as the envelope, select another object to which you apply the envelope, and then choose Object > Envelope Distort > Make With Top Object.

You can edit either an envelope or its contents, but not both at the same time. To edit an envelope, you select the envelope and then choose Object > Envelope Distort > Reset With Warp or Reset With Mesh. You can also use the selection tool or mesh tool to edit the envelope. To edit an envelope's contents, you select the envelope and then choose Object > Envelope Distort > Edit Contents.
