Hello - this problem is causing me untold headaches as I just cant solve how to stop 'perspective' being added (which I specifically don't want). I want to distort some text (imagine its the word 'TEXT'), so that the letters are taller on the left hand side and shorter on the right hand side. In the normal way, its recommended to transform the text into a shape so that it remains vectorized and keeps its quality, and then simply to Edit / Transform path / distort. However, when I do this, distort adds an unwanted perspective which makes the smaller letters thinner and the larger letters fatter whilst altering the spacing. I only want to change the height from left to right. I don't want any perspective effects. I want all the letters to remain the same width and look like they are lying in the same plane rather than disappearing off into some perspectival hell. This, after all, makes the final letters almost illegible. Simple distort without perspective. How do I do it?
I include an image that shows what I want to do.
