Illustrator Arc Cutting Problems


New Member
Master(s), Grasshopper need to learn

I'm trying to cut an arc of letters through Illustrator and can't get the letter outline to actually be in the arc. I'm trying to use Effects/Warp/Arc and then Creating Outlines for the letters. I'm still getting the paths not where the letters are. See picture. How do i move the paths to where the letters are so that i can cut the arced letters?

Thanks in advance for your help...
