im trying to make the text intoo an outline but everytime i click and try to out line it outlines the text box and no the text and the text does not turn intoo a shape with the edit points around it. can anyone help me fix this
Please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels visible (that includes the Layers Panel showing the selected object).
Is the text actually text within Illustrator or a placed graphic?
What happens when you select the Direct Selection Tool (A)?
it just moves the whole text around
Please post meaningful screenshots.
The one you posted obviously shows the blue contour of the text, so apparently the conversion happened …
Basically what im trying to do is the third screen shot you sent but it works if i hover over a letter it shows the edit option
Maybe View > Show Edges?
