    Has "Convert to Editable Text" been removed from After Effects?




      I'm using CC 2017. Just starting to learn Ae and no matter what I try I cannot get the text from an Illustrator design into Ae as something editable. I've followed all the common instructions, I have:


      -Separated the nested elements into their own layers (in Illustrator) 

      -Exported this as a .psd in RGB with Text Editability preserved


      When I import it into After Effects, it comes in as one psd file, not a compisition, and with no layers to reveal. If I select the file and click "layers", the "Convert to Editable Text" function does not appear. Not even greyed out. Help.


      Thanks for any advice.
