Hello,

 

When I click on a text box, with a selection tool, without going inside of the text, I remember that I was able to see the character options on the upper ribbon expanded in the past. However, now I have click the text with type tool to see the options or I have to click on character button to open

it. Do I remember wrong? This feature does not applicable in AI?

Hi @Margins&Mobility,

which Illustrator version we speak about?

 

Can you show us a sceenshot from the whole Illustrator window, please?

 

Is your Illustrator window maximized? See the difference - if is not:

(small window and Selection Tool)

As pixxxel_schubser is suggesting, with the Control panel (ribbon) the features you see are totally dependent on what object is selected AND the size of your window as well as the resolution of your monitor. If you're working on a laptop, you will see a lot less features in the Control panel than you would on a big, higher resolution monitor. Adobe designed the Control panel to fit as many features as there's room for. If there's not room for a feature, it's not shown until the application window is made wider. If you maximize the application window to the size of your screen or  increase the resolution settings for your monitor, you should see what you're currently missing.

Assuming you're using a recent enough version of Illustrator, you would also have those options available in the Properties panel (Window menu > Properties regardless of window width.
