Wondering if there is a preference I can select to ensure the warp tool result matches the smooth red preview outline Illustrator generates (which I have seen on online tutorials) as mine creates sharp corners? Before and after files of a simple closed path rectangle attached.

Laura, You have probably experienced a temporary corruption of a kind that can be healed by simply restarting the application/computer one or more times; there are more serious corruptions that require more. Or, if you have started over in a new document and (only then) succeeded, you may have experienced a corruption of the original document, in which case you might have been able to copy the artwork to a new document and have it behave.

Oddly, today the warp tool works smoothly and I can’t delete the original post — the “… More” button simply shows an empty lozenge — although keen to see what caused the original result, for future reference.

Laura,

 

You have probably experienced a temporary corruption of a kind that can be healed by simply restarting the application/computer one or more times; there are more serious corruptions that require more.

 

Or, if you have started over in a new document and (only then) succeeded, you may have experienced a corruption of the original document, in which case you might have been able to copy the artwork to a new document and have it behave.

 

Both are known causes of wrong/strange behaviour.

 

 

None of us can delete posts, except for Adobe staff.

 

Recently, the More option of editing a post has been removed for newcomers owing to less nice folk joining the forums and posting bad things, and then bypassing moderation by editing the bad things back in; it will appear when you have used the forums some more.

 

 

Apart from that, your describing the issue and its vanishing again can be very helpful for others.
