    Does anyone know how to create this bend like in the word cheer keeping the flat top and just curving the bottom. I use Adobe Illustrator 6 and Flexi Expert 10. I know I did this once years ago but can't remember how. Any help is appreciated.

    Transform then arc lower then slide negative. This will achieve that look.

    Don't know about Illy but in Flexi:

    Type our your text and pick your font
    With your text selected, click the distort button under the effects menu
    Click on distort type on your Design Central tab
    Select the "Arch-Top" effect
    On the rotation angle set it to 180
    Now go yo your text and stretch the text they way you want it
    When you have it the way you want click the check mark in the Design Central.

    You can go back to Design Central to edit the arch if needed.
