Can’t figure out how to add a continous gradient to text

The text is outlined. I have tried grouping and ungrouping the individual letters, but the gradient is applying to each individual letter instead of a single gradient across the entire object. On desktop, I usually remedy this by using the gradient tool and spreading it across the selected object. But there's no gradient tool for iPad, just a swatch thingy. 🤷🏻‍:female_sign:

Try converting the outlines to a single compound path

That's a good idea. It's treating the outlined objects as separate elements. Can you tell me how I can do compound paths? Sorry, I'm still trying to figure out this iPad version of Illustrator. Thanks.

On the right edge of your screen are several panels. Click on them to discover what operations they include. One of them will allow you to create a compound path from one or more selected objects (like letterforms that have been converted to outlines).
