I'm lost here. 2 hours down the drain trying to figure this out.
This is what's happening:
I'm trying to map text to a flag shape for a client's logo. I've followed the steps outlined here for an idea of what to do. Pretty much every other post I've looked at says essentially the same thing as that tutorial.
My problem is that when I go to map my artwork to the flag shape (an extruded 1pt stroke), in the "Map Art" dialogue box, none of the surfaces encompass the entire shape. I get the edges, top, bottom, and the main middle part (the part I want the text to appear) is broken up into smaller groups.
For example, I'll have 7 surfaces. One will be the bottom line, another the top line, two edges, the back (or part of) and then the middle bit is a group of different sections - none of which is big enough to hold the text.
I have no idea why it's doing this. I would love any help!
