Make a Mesh with Text

Here’s a cool tip that comes courtesy of David Creamer in Mac Design Magazine. As an interesting way of transforming text without creating outlines, select the type with the Selection tool (V), and use the Object>Envelope Distort>Make with Mesh command (Command-Option-M [PC: Control-Alt-M]). The trick is to make the mesh have only one row and one column. Then use the Mesh tool (U) to distort the corner handles. To edit the text, select it again with the Selection tool, and go back to Object>Envelope Distort and choose Edit Contents (Command- Shift-V [PC: Control-Shift-V]).
