To change the mapping mode

1 Open the Interactive Tools flyout, and click the Interactive Envelope tool.

2 Select the object that has the envelope you want to edit.

3 Choose one of the following mapping options from the Mapping Mode list box on the Property Bar:

• Horizontal Mode — stretches the object to fit the basic dimensions of the envelope, then compresses it horizontally to fit the shape of the envelope

• Original Mode — maps the corner handles on the object's selection box to the envelope's corner nodes. The other nodes are mapped linearly along the edge of the object's selection box. The nodes' control points are taken into consideration during mapping

• Putty Mode — maps the corner handles on the object's selection box to the envelope's corner nodes only. The other nodes are ignored

• Vertical Mode — stretches the object to fit the basic dimensions of the envelope, then compresses it vertically to fit the shape of the envelope

4 Select the object you selected in step 1.

5 Edit the envelope until it is the shape you want.
