Hey!

 

I just used my pen tool to type a word in my own way I want to make it in a gradient. 

When i add the gradient. it addds but to each individual word. I have tried clipping masks with the gradient behind it but that just seems to make everything dissapear or it colours in loops I have within the text. 

 

Any ideas? help?

 

Thankyou!

Answering  why you have got stuck when trying a clipping mask over several paths. The top or last path will be the clipping path, thus, before trying that, select all the paths and Make a Compound Path (Ctrl/Cmd+8), and now create a Clippng Mask.

 

From the beginning:

1. You can -unify gradients-, select all the letters and apply the gradient, it will show -separately- on each shape, well while they are kept selected, choose the Gradient Tool and drag it across them in the direction you prefer. The gradient will be applied to all pen drawn letters from on side acroos them or from a center point, to the other letters.

2. Another way to do it is select all the paths, Create a Compund Path (Object menu) all the paths act as combined, compound, path. click on the gradient you have adjusted. Using the Gradient Tool you can readjust direction, extension,....

chiara,

 

As I (mis)understand it, you can do it reversibly/fully editably if you create a rectangle behind the words with the desired gradient, then (presuming black letters) select everything and in the Transparency palette (flyout) click Make (Opacity) Mask with both Clip and Invert Mask ticked (in the main Transparency palette).

Fine, but I think the goal is to offer firstly, the most common and straight ( and simple) answer or answers
