I create my Envelope Distort | Create mesh.

But when I move one anchor point with the Direct Select, the whole object moves, then when I release the mouse the whole object disappears. I'm stumped! Thanks!

(Hmm, when I try to attach my .ai example, I get "The attachment's aiexample.ai content type (application/postscript) does not match its file extension and has been removed." Hence the pdf attachment...)

Seems to work for me: Maybe a simple restart or reset of the Preferences? https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html

Which version and system is it?

When was the last time you rebooted the computer?

Reseting all around did the trick. Being a noobie I thought I must be doing something wrong but apparently not. MANY THANKS!
