It means what it says. You need a single path, not a group of separate paths.
Show an illustration that shows what you're going to do. Perhaps there are other ways.
I tried to upload a screenshot but for some reason it wasn't working, I'll try to work on it a little later. I know this is a really simple thing to do and its annoying.
zIn the reply message dialog there is a camera icon at the top click on it to attach a screenshot.
yeah I know how to upload the sceenshot but it's not uploading.
I do not know why it is saying this but try grouping everthing.
Do not try grouping everything. It won't help here.
Instead, try to show a screenshot or provide an elaborate description that explains what you're going to do.
Or post a sample .ai file with instructions.
uploader still isnt working for some reason, so I'll try to explain it better.
I have 2 objects, a circle and a patch of stars.
I used the circle and created a symbol set which I colored and grouped.
I grouped all the stars together and placed the group of stars on top of the circles.
Do the stars need to be made into a symbol set too?
Then I tried to use the envelope distortion but it kept saying there needs to be a single path. Sorry I can't upload a picture...
