The written word

Illustrator has six tools for creating type, a smorgasbord of features with which type can be styled and formatted, and many word processing features. Type can be freestanding, it can flow along the edge of an object (path type) , or it can fill the inside of an object of any shape (area type). Depending on which tool is used to create it, type can flow and read vertically or horizontally. It can be repositioned, edited, restyled, recolored, or transformed.
