I am just trying to convert my text to shape, everytime I try an error message comes up saying object not converted. I am about to lose my mind trying to figure out why it is saying this. It wont create outlines either. I tried clicking expand that didn't help. Its just simple plain text. It wont work. Let me know. Screen Shot 2020-06-27 at 3.41.40 PM.png

It seems you are selecting something else, an square with no fill/stroke. (Press Ctrl+Y to enter Outline View, to check it). Click somewhere else with the Type tool, and press ESC. You will see a different bounding box or selection.

I'm having the same issue now, with Illustrstor. I'm only selecting one object, (which is the text). The answer above doesn't resolve my problem.
