    Illustrator, how do I make a warp effect "permanent"?

    Hi guys and girls,

    If I use the effect Warp...and lets say I first outline then arc my text so it looks nice..

    Now how do I do so this effect is "permanent" ...so it's the actual shape of the object...and not just an applied effect!?

    ...do you guys get what I mean?

    Thanks!

    I would advice against it.. or at least keep a back up file. Live effects are the most useful thing Adobe has come up with. But, if you want to finalize your work... and to answer your question: Objects>Expand Appearance.

    hope that helps
