Is there a way to extrude and rotate a shape, then change the color of the original shape without changinng the extrusion color? Or make a copy of it and then remove the extrusion?
Please show a sketch or an example.
Figured out how to do it. Take the shape, copy-paste it then extrude one with no depth, copy the numbers down, then extrude the 2nd. Change to fill on the first one and overlay it. Now if only there was a way to change the extrusion to a gradiant.
Expand appearance and then apply a gradient.
Before you do that, set the shading in the effect to none.
Just discovered that you can set a shading color in "More Options" in Extrude dialog. Now I'm playing with that.
Or stroke the text.
