I want to move and change the colours of the letters in a text freely but I can't ungroup it.
What I want to do but it does't work : Type -> Create Outlines , -> Objects -> Ungroup
I was it on this tutorial ( from 5:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLGgNyvODxE
Can somebody please help me, I tried everything.
After you release the compound path, you may have to fix any counters/bowls. The easiest way is to select the letter paths (one letter at a time) is to use the Pathfinder.
Another option is to use the Direct Selection tool and select one letter at a time.
As there are a number of disadvantages to outlined fonts, depending on other factors, you might consider resetting the text so that it's not outlined.
