Hi,

I am curious to know if and when it is necessary to expand text?  Does text need to be expanded before saving the file in PDF format?

Thanks!

No, it shouldn't be.

Thanks Miguel!

I just have one last question regarding this topic.

How do I apply an effect, such as radial gradient to text that has not been expanded?  I tried creating a new layer, etc., but nothing happened.

Also, if I want to merge two words and make them appear with the same effect, I tried to merge the two words before applying the effect and voila, but there was no need to apply a second layer.  Why is that?  I am a bit confused.

Look forward to your response!

Diane
