Travel Deformer

Pro Feature

Pro features are only available with a Professional licence. To upgrade, visit


Reposition the start points for all Contours within a Path. Some features like Stroke or Pathfinder already have a Travel attribute but the Travel Deformer provides a way to manipulate contours for other custom uses such as:

  • Travel a Shape that's constrained to the point of another Shape along that Shape.
  • Travel tapered/dashed strokes along/around a path (when Trim ≠ 0 or 100%).
  • Loop a Text Shape around a closed Path.


Travel - Set the position of the Contour's first point as a percentage along the Contour's length.


Note that for open Contours, Travel will remove any part of the path before the start point.
