    Hello all,

    I would like to find a way to apply envelope distort on a text but without having to apply the envelope distort effect on each character of the text individually.
    Rather just apply the effect only once on the text and have Illustrator take care of the rest.

    For an easier understanding on what I’m trying to achieve please refer to the included image below:

    To get the desired result in step two I had to apply the effect three times on each individual character.
    I would like to know if there is a way to achieve it in one step and if there is how would you do it?

    Thank you in advance,

    I don’t think that’s going to happen. Your workaround is the only way to do what you want that I’m aware of.
