Does this happen in other documents too?

When the contour of the textbox is selected with the Direct Selection tool you can see that is has a fill.

Somehow you cannot see the fill, but it becomes visible when you create outlines.

If you remove the fill before creatiing outlines it behaves as expected.

Hi there,

 

Sorry about the trouble. I am unable to replicate this issue at my end. Could you please share a few more details like:

  • OS and version of Illustrator
  • Is the issue related to a specific document? Could you please share a sample document with us? You can upload it to the Creative Cloud (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/share.html) and share the download link.
  • Are there any recent changes made to your system? For example, any antivirus, system updates, or web extensions installed recently.
  • A small video demonstrating the issue could be really helpful.
  • Does resetting Illustrator Preferences ( https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html) help to resolve the issue?
    Disclaimer: Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.

 

I will be looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini

Is this happening only in this document or in every new document?

If so, I would suggest to reset your preferences:

This "correct answer" didn't work for me. My text is white. No fill on the text box. No way to see where it would be, direct selection tool or no. When outlines are created, the text filled in a purple pantone color that is not even in the document's artwork. Any other suggestions?
