    Unable to Create Outlines with Type on Path

    srioc Community Member

      Hello,

       

      I'm using Illustrator CS4. I am unable to Create Outlines for a font after I had used the type on the Path Tool. I had used the ellipse tool to create a closed circular path, then I selected the Type on a Path tool. I selected my text using the arrow tool and ctrl-shift-o (Create outlines) and then I receive the message: "Can't Create type outlines." Not quite sure why this is happening. Did I miss something? The thing is this - my type is in the position and alignment that I want and I don't necessarily want to work with the Type as a Font but as vector shapes. Is there a way or technique to be able to do this? Or is there an alternative? Any hints or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
