    Creating outlines on text in CS5



      I am trying to create a dotted outline around some text.

      I have followed the tutorial in Adode for Applying line stroke settings which all makes perfect sense, however....


      I highlight the text, open the stroke panel but although the 'weight' and 'mitre limit' can be changed, the 'type' is faded out so all I seem able to do is have a bold outline instead of choosing to have dots.


      I have also tried type / create outlines but this just removes the whole word.


      I'm at a loss....if that 'type' wasn't faded out I'd be home and dry!
