    Now to make a curved graphic banner?

    kiski Level 1

      I have a rectangle 1" high x 6" wide with curved corners that I need to change the overall shape and then place type on top.

      The two words of type were set on a curved path. The rectangle has to match the curve of the type.

      The rectangle would be curved along the top and bottom edge and both edges would be parallel.


      I cannot figure out how to do this. Each time I change the anchor points and drag the handles to match the curve of the type, something is always askew!

      I tried two ellipses overlapping and then use Pathfinder to delete a portion, but then I loose the straight edges on the left and right.


      How to do this? Please be specific!


      Much thanks. :-)
