I'm not exactly sure what happened, but suddenly my Type Tool can not select type by double clicking or click and drag any more.
I'm using Illustrator CS4 (14.0.0) on a MacPro with OSX 10.6.8. Can someone please suggest what might be happening and how to resolve this problem?
Check preferences for "Text": "Select text-object by path only" should be off.
Thank you. This has been bugging me for months.
What I never will understand is why Adobe makes changes like this in the first place. Too many programmers with not enough to do.
There is a functional reason for this depending on how you work if you read yup about it in the help files i think they explain it well as i recalled it was exxplained well in the manual when they had one.
It is not a change it has been this way for a long time and the options serve different users in a helpful way. hough it wwould be helpful to have a toggle of some kind.
