The Missing Twist Tool

In Illustrator 10, there was a Twist tool (which was also named the Twirl tool in previous versions) nested under the Rotate tool, but it is not in CS2. Why? You’ll have to ask Adobe that one, although we understand that it has to do with the inability of the Twist tool to twist things back to the way they were. Now if you want to twist an object, you’ll have to use Effect>Distort & Transform>Twist. Although you have to distort numerically, the advantage of using the effect is that you can easily change the settings (by double-clicking on Twist in the object’s Appearance palette [found under the Window menu]).
