Chapter 10. Whose Line Is It Anyway? ...... > Before and After Legacy Text

Before and After Legacy Text

When you open documents from previous versions of Illustrator that contain type, you’ll get a warning about updating the legacy text. Although you could choose to update all the text at once, you will not be able to see the difference between the legacy text and the updated text in CS2. Instead, click OK and then update individual pieces of text by using the Type tool (T) to click on the text you want to edit. In the dialog that appears, click the Copy Text Object button and a dimmed copy of the original (legacy) text will appear below the updated text. Use the original text for comparison as you manually adjust the updated type to match the original. Once you’re done, go to the Type menu, choose Legacy Text, and from the submenu, choose to hide or delete the copy that was created for you.
