Creating Outlines

The Create Outlines command takes text and converts the outlines of each individual letter shape to a path. Essentially, this command turns a letter form into a closed path that you can then fill, drag to edit the shape of, or treat as a container. This can be useful if you want to place an image inside the text, place other text inside a letter shape, or alter the paths of individual letters to create a special effect of custom letter shapes.

To create path outlines, select your text using the Type tool to highlight it, or select the text frame itself. Choose Type, Create Outlines.
