In the current version (24.3) I seem to have lost the ability to add stroke and fill to a shape that has Area Type. If I copy/paste a shape from a file created in aprevious version (with stroke and fill and Area Type), the stroke and fill disappear. What changed?

It works today. An OS update and system reboot last night may have something to do with it.

At first glace I cannot reproduce your issue in the Mac version of Illustrator.

 

What operating system are you using?

Assuming that by PC you mean a Windows based machine, you may want to wait until some Illustrator Windows users chime in. Perhaps they can reproduce the issue and provide a solution.

I have no problem adding a stroke and fill to a shape with area type on Windows 10, Illustrator 24.3

Does it affect all documents or just one? Can you share your file?
