I'm on CS4 on a PC - when I outline a group of text containing a compound shape, the compound shape "goes away". It's as if the create outlines command expands the compound shape - anyone else experiencing the same problem? If so how can I fix it? Thanks!
Hi NukLady: I want to understand you correctly. I tried repeating what you stated, starting with the Text Tool and typing "artistic" text (as opposed to paragraph text, which is a term borrowed from CorelDraw). The text contains an "a" and two "e" 's and a "p" which are all compound shapes. But editable Text does not yet have compound shapes in my scenario. I find that the "Create Outlines" command creates compound shapes for each letter and places them in a Group.
