In Illustrator I have warped text in an envelope and I can't figure out how to modify the color. Is this possible, if so how?

Choose Object > Envelope Distort > Edit Contents from the menu.

  • there isn't this option for me in Illustrator CC, anyone knows why? Sep 21, 2015 at 14:50

In Illustrator CC you can:

Choose object > Envelope Distort > Expand

    Hi Toriki94, welcome to GD.SE! I would advise not to expand the object because you will not be able to edit the text and the object that is transforming the text. Scott's answer is a non-destructive way of editing the text without expanding. Keep contributing and enjoy the site!
