Troubleshooting

Variable Types

I’m trying to create a variable from an object on the artboard, but Illustrator won’t let me.

First make sure that the object with which you’re trying to work is capable of becoming a dynamic object. Point type (not area type or type-on-a-path), an Illustrator graph (that has not be ungrouped), and linked files are the only dynamic objects allowed. You cannot, for example, create a variable from a rectangle or a line or a brush stroke. Move the artwork to a separate Illustrator document and export or save it in any format other than Illustrator’s own .ai (which cannot be placed).
