Hi there, thanks for reaching out. If I get it, you are unable to get the handles that allows you to move the words you typed.
I would request if you can share a few more details like:
Please refer to this helpful tutorial for Type On Path tool.
Let us know if that helps or you need any further assistance.
You need to select the text object with the selection tool (black arrow).
Make sure that "Show Edges" is enabled.
Go to View and scroll down the list. If you see "Show Edges" that means it is disabled. Select that and it should turn them on.
Or, the key command on a mac is "Command H"
You saved me. I have been looking for this over 30min. Thanks a lot.
Thank you so much! I have been struggling with this today as well. I must of accidentally hit the shortcut keys and I was convinced it was due to a recent upgrade. Illustrator can be so frustrating, especially the type on a path tool
