Hi, I'm trying to create an envelope distort with top object, despite my top object being a single path, I'm being given the message - This path requires a selection of multiple objects. The top object must be a single path or mesh, or a symbol containing a single path or mesh. Does anyone have ant ideas to get around this?

What's your 'bottom' object? Do you have both 'top' and 'bottom' objects selected?

Unfortunately I cannot show a screenshot. I have however put everything onto the same layer. I've tried with in a different document with an open path on top and a single shape below, this time I'm given the error - the operation cannot complete because of an unknown error illustrator [3]

The top object must be a closed path. Is it so?
If content is sensitive, could you please to try the operation with abstract content (e.g. a random shape on top and a random group below) and make a screenshot with it and with expanded Layer panel?
