    Creating outlines on text in CS5

    pkbrown

      Hi

      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!

       

      Thanks
