The text has been converted to outlines. It is no more editable.
Looks like they were converted to outlines.
People sometimes do this when they use a free font which does not allow embedding of the font or printing of the font, or a web only based font not intended for printing, thus the permissions within the font are turned off for those features.
So some people convert to outlines.
Solution - find a similar font or that exact font and create new text for them.
A good resource is Whatfontis and whatthefont.com
Here you can upload images of the text and it will try to identify the fonts.
Thank you! At least now I know to stop trying.
