Working with Type

Illustrator has many of the text features you will also find in InDesign. Illustrator can create two kinds of text objects. The first is called point text, which is the simpler of the two. You create point text by selecting the Type tool and clicking on a blank area on your artboard. You're presented with a blinking cursor, and you can begin to enter text immediately. Illustrator calls this point text because your text is aligned by the point that was created when you clicked with the Type tool (see Figure 7.149). Point text does not reflow, meaning that as you continue to enter text, the line grows longer and longer, and doesn't break to a second line (unless you press Return or Enter).
