    Gradients not showing up in illustrator text

    overXbound Level 1

      I've done this 100s of times all the sudden it doesn't work. I pick a gradient and try to set it to the text and the text turns to black any idea why this is happening? Gradients work fine with object but for some reasons text cannot be anything but a solid color. This is in CS4.

       

      It might be worth noting that I can set a gradient for the stroke on text which in itself is odd as I haven't been able to do that in the past.
