I'm trying to learn Illustrator, and I'm going through an online tutorial on envelope distortions. I noticed that I can't move the created compound object with the direct selection tool after the one object is distorted by the other. The instructor on the online video can freely move the object by clicking anywhere inside the compound object box, but I can't.
I noticed that if I click on the "inside" distorted box of the compound object, I can move the object around. I don't understand why I can't just click anywhere inside and move as happens on the online video. Any ideas? Thanks
