Hi all,

this happened to me a few times. Not alot, but I'm curious and would like to know the cause of it.

• Black colour text ---> Select text, create outline ---> Text changes to path but a black box appears infront and covers the pathed text.

I can guess it has something to do with object fill. But I'm unable to pin point or recreate the issue on a fresh text box to prove it.

Would anyone know of the cause.

The solution is simple, delete the black box and I will see my pathed text, but I'm worried that I may missed it if i'm working on a huge artwork.

If I do miss it and send the artwork to print, I'll be doomed. So best to know that cause and avoid the mistake from happening.

Thank you

I tried any ways of creating the text & than outline, but was't able to recreate the issue & never faced such issue in past.

Did you remember the font you used & anything added to the appearance panel.

I've had this issue and a friend finally showed me the solution. The solid boxes appear only if you're outlining "Area Type" or paragraph boxes. The fix is to select any Area Type boxes in your file, and go to Type menu and select "Convert to Point Type" prior to doing the "Create Outlines" step.
