I'm making a design for a client and they gave me the final text to put it into the design. Once I was done they said that they wanted to change the text again, but the problem is that I outlined all the text (it was supposed to go for printing right after).
I know the chances are slim, but is there any way that I can turn my outlines back into live text? I should have made a copy but i didn't :((((
bit of help with a work around (if you're on a mac) screen grab a text area, then use the text recognition in preview App to select the text, (which it will recognise and process into live text). Then paste into a new text frame in illustrator and line it up over the top and adjust the text formatting to match. delete the outline text for that area, and move on rinse / repeat.
