In a particular file I am working with, every time I try to use the Type on a Path tool, the following happens: As soon as I start typing, I can see the text that I entered, but it always preceded by an odd-looking A then what seems to be a tab space. I have tried to backspace and delete it, but that doesn't work. I've tried using different shapes, and it happens with all of them. Everything else about typing on a path works fine - I just can't get rid of this weird character/space. See attached image.
Can you check and see if the style you're using has bullets turned on?
Wow – that was the problem! Thanks so much!
