The first photo is what it used to look like when I wanted to move type along a path. But today I don't see the handle/center bracket that allows me to move type on a path. Can someone please tell me where my handle/center bracket has gone or how to get it back?

You need to select the text object with the selection tool (black arrow).

Hi there,

 

Hi there, thanks for reaching out. If I get it, you are unable to get the handles that allows you to move the words you typed.

I would request if you can share a few more details like:

 

  1. Version of OS and Illustrator.
  2. Do you see the same beahviour on the new files ?
  3. Please check in the Layers Pannel if the layers are locked, if yes, please unlock them and try again.

 

Please refer to this helpful tutorial for Type On Path tool.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZW1l9yGXFgU

 

Let us know if that helps or you need any further assistance.

 

Regards

Rishabh

Make sure that "Show Edges" is enabled.

Go to View and scroll down the list. If you see "Show Edges" that means it is disabled. Select that and it should turn them on.

Or, the key command on a mac is "Command H"
