I am trying to make a package file for my text, but the option is greyed out.  I can't find anywhere that has the fix for this problem, I saved the file but it won't let me package it after that.  All of the text is in the original text format, none of it is rasterized.

Have you save the document and does it have link objects the can be packaged?

Note: You must save a file before packaging the Linked Smart Objects that it contains.

I too am having the same issue. I have no linked smart objects. Everything was either opened directly or embedded. Still 'package' is greyed or is it grayed out.pkg.jpg

Looks like there nothing to package. Save the file as is.

What is your intention with packaging?

To capture the fonts that are used in the graphic. Just like you can do in Illustrator.

I have this exact situation. I am profoundly saddened to see the thread ends at exactly the question I need resolved.

I am having this same problem. I have complex file to send to production, so I need the package function to collect the linked files. Package is grayed out- file has been saved. all layers are unlocked. this is a real train wreck.

This may or may not help, but I had the same problem and realized you cannot have any unsaved changes. It's not enough just to have saved the file at some point; all changes must be saved (and therefore no asterisk up in the filename in the tab). That did the trick for me.

Agree with this solution. The file I was trying to package was fully saved, but I had another file open (with simliar content) that was not fully saved. Once I made sure all of my open AI files were saved, I could then package the file I wanted.
