Creating type

The type tools

There are three horizontal type tools: The Type tool, the Area Type tool, and the Path Type tool. Each of these tools has a counterpart for creating vertical type: the Vertical Type tool, the Vertical Area Type tool, and the Vertical Path Type tool. Some of these tools' functions overlap, but each of them has unique characteristics for producing a particular kind of type object.

The Type tool creates a freestanding block of type that is not associated with a path . You can also draw a rectangle with it and enter type inside the rectangle; you can use it to enter type along the edge of an open path; or you can use it to enter type inside a closed path. It's the most versatile of the type tools.
