Whenever I try
effect->warp->arc... I can arc my text, but when I try to rotate it (say by -30 degrees) the text gets very distorted -- especially at the end point. Matters are worse if I try to rotate by a higher percentage (say -60 degrees).
I played around with countless vertical/horizontal distortion combinations, but the only way I found around this problem was by rasterizing the text first then rotating. However, this introduced its own set of problems because now I'm not in vector space anymore and I lost a good deal of fidelity in the process.
Is there a fool-proof way to arc text and then safely rotate it as desired without having to worry about distortion?
