Envelope Distort with a top object that has curves with only one handle makes the contents tangled and broken
When I try to use envelope distort it makes all of the type look crazy. I have used it successfully in the past, I unchecked the distort button in options. Not sure how to solve, I restarted and reinstalled Illustrator — still not working. The attached image shows the 2 elements I am trying to distort and the bottom shows the result I get.17 votes
When trying to use Envelope Distort (eg Mesh) and the 'Anti Alias' option to maintain clarity, if the artwork features embedded images (eg a multichannel PSD that must be embedded for Envelope Distort action) it is clearly seen the results with and with AA active are different. Only without use of AA will the colour values remain faithful to the original pre-distorted image.
Whilst I would expect some changes along edges, etc. that would benefit the most from using AA, it is seen across the entire image. This is not correct and renders the Envelope Distort function unusable for these…7 votes
Thanks for reporting this issue, Illustrator team really appreciate this.
We are able to reproduce this issue and investigating it further.
I am having a situation where I have created an arc envelope distortion of some text and, after committing my initial bend, decided to edit the distortion.
The problem is that, when I go back into Envelope Distort > Edit Envelope and increase (or decrease) the bend, H or V distortion in the toolbar, for every digit I go up or down, the object itself nudges down the page by 30-40 points.
I have changed the transformation reference point from the top to the center to the bottom of the object, but it doesn't matter. The object still nudges down…3 votes
Text and envelope distort bug still needs work.
I've seen this reported before but it is strange why it has not been addressed in the latest version of AI, the envelope distort with top object will warp text for example, incorrectly, if the bounding object is at a certain angle. The workaround is not satisfactory because the bounding object must be rotated more horizontally to the text, resulting in an env. distort that's not the intended effect. Please see examples of before and after: one is correct (had to derive from CorelDraw), the other is not (AI).

I've recently come across a bug with the envelope distortion tool. The bug happens when I use the Make with Warp effect on text. When this is applied, all the layers and sub-layers get frozen with no ability to see the thumbnail preview or to open or close any of the layers. This also affects the ability to hide or preview any layer, lock or unlock, and/or select anything in the layers.
This also causes Illustrator to run very high ram while causing unresponsiveness and difficulty in processing and sometimes the inability to save files.
So far, the work-a-rounds that…2 votes
As per the comment from the developer of the LTTR/INK plugin, this issue is going to be fixed in the upcoming update of the tool.

Points and handles of gradient meshes sometimes disappear if i draw a another object, like a rectangle, near or over them.
Points stay selectable but are not highlighted. If I move them with the Keyboard, they reappear!2 votes
Working on iMac with Ai 2019.
The Envelope Distort tool gives this message:
The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error.
Will not even work on a simple rectangle, or by selecting two simple rectangles.2 votes
I have been using the envelope distort feature (make with mesh) for a few years without any issues. It normally works exactly as I need it to. However, there now seems to be a problem...
What I normally do is I embed an image (usually a tiff) into the illustrator file. Then Object > Envelope Distort > Make with mesh. Then I input the number of rows and columns I would like to use and distort as necessary. The number of rows and columns is normally not an issue. But now for some reason I am limited in the number…1 vote

Envelope Distort > Make with warp > when changing % bend it keeps adding the new value to the old. If I have the slider at 20%, then change it to 10%, it warps the object as if it was set to 30%, before I've even hit OK.1 vote
I used the Mesh Tool on a very simply modified oval object(it looks like a symmetrical bicycle seat). And when I do so, the Mesh Tool ignores existing anchor points and arbitrarily creates new points along the object's path. Sometimes very near the object's original points, and sometimes directly on top of those points so there will be 2 overlapping points.
Also, regardless if the object is isolated or not, changing the newly Gradient Meshed anchor point color values produces no effect. And clicking off of these points resets the point's color profile to Grayscale. If I change Grayscale…1 vote
Opening the file I included will crash CC2019 every time.
Illustrator CC2018 opens the file without a problem.
Expanding the envelopes will stop the crashing in CC2019.
If you delete one of the two layers in the included file, there's only one envelope left and CC2019 opens it without a problem.
