I've been fooling around with the free distort Effect > Distort & Transform > Free Distort feature, and now I want to reset the shape to its normal aspects.

I was really unlucky and managed to quit the program during the progress, but managed to save the file. However, now I can't Command + Z to bring it back to its original form.

When I use the feature again Effect > Distort & Transform > Free Distort the shape will go back to its original form, but as I click "OK", it will stay unchanged..

How do I solve this?

Delete the Free Distort effect from the Appearance panel and you'll be fine.
