Chapter 10. TEXT > Font Management

Font Management

The text in a text block or attached to a path is called editable text. This means that you can work with the text—change the font or the letters—at any time. However, there are some effects—such as changing the shapes of letters—that require that the text be converted into paths.

To convert text to paths:

1.
Select the text block or text on a path.

2.
Choose Text > Convert to Paths. This converts the text into grouped paths.

3.
Use Subselection tool to manipulate the paths 33.

Tip

Once you convert text to paths, you can no longer edit it in the Text Editor; you can then edit it only as path objects.
