I'm working in a file here called warp.ai. I'm going to click on this particular text object right here. Next, I'll go to the Effect menu and I'll choose Warp. You will see that 15 different options appear over here. It really doesn't make a difference which one of these you choose.

I am actually going to choose its Arc one and you will understand why in a moment. The Warp Options dialog box appears. With the Preview button, we can see basically what it looks like, but most importantly, where it says Style over here, I have a pop-up menu that gives me those same 15 options....
