I recently purchased AI for a project at my job and am trying to offset a path for a font in order to give it a bold appearance.  When I go to OBJECT -> PATH then all of my options are not available to be clicked.  We purchased the full Creative Cloud so there shouldn't be an issue.  Can someone please help.

 

Thanks!

Offset path is not an option for text objects.

You could use the offset path effect instead (Effects > Path > Offset Path).

Or use a stroke contour for your text. You will need the double width because of strokes on text objects are always aligned to the "middle".
