    For Complex > Inside TrackSwitch between Line and Arc by selecting the check boxes beside Line or Arc. If the check box is cleared, the parameter will specify a line. If the check box is selected, it will specify an arc. (The label will change from Line to Arc when you select a check box.) For each Line, set its Length (the length of its straight part) and Angle (the tilt angle of its straight part). For each Arc, set its Radius (the minimum radius of its rounded corner part) and its Angle (the central angle of its rounded corner part).
  4. After setting the parameters, click Create to create the source grid and the destination grid.

  5. Select the artwork that requires warping, and position it over the source grid (the rectangular grid).  Only graphics positioned in the live area of the source grid will be moved to the destination grid. Any graphics outside the source grid will be clipped out of the destination grid. The following image shows the artwork positioned over the source grid.
  6. Click Warp. The Warp button is active only if your artwork is selected. When you click Warp, your artwork will be warped to fit the destination grid.
