After seeing your messages this morning, I decided to see if I could replicate the problem with a new text field. I also was unable to replicate it, because it worked perfectly this time, lol.  All I did was create the text field, type in my text, and then went to add new effect, distort and transform, and then twist.

Thanks,
Peter

I'm not able to replicate the problem either. There may be a problem with the installation.

You could try closing and reoping Illustrator.

If that doesn't work, you could try resetting preferences or even uninstalling and reinstalling the application.

I'd also like to know the steps that you used to get that effect. It looks kind of interesting!

All I did was create the text field, type in my text, and then went to add new effect, distort and transform, and then twist. You can choose the angle of the twist. I like using this to add whimsy to my text!

Here is what it should look like:

Do you still have your "problem file"?
You may have unknowingly assigned a second fill to your text (or group or layer). And only this fill got the effect.

But this could only be seen if you give us your file or a screenshot of the selected text field with open appearance panel.
