Using Outlines as Text Frames

After you have converted your type to outlines, you can place text inside just as you would any other frame.

  1. Choose File→Place, and select the file to be placed.

  2. Click with your loaded text icon on the outline object (Figure 3.58).

You want to make sure that your outline object has a fill color that will allow you to see your placed text. A fill of None and a stroke of Black is a good starting point.


You will see the in port and out port and, if you have text that's not being displayed, the overset text symbol. You can adjust the text or the frame just as you would any other. (See Chapter 6, 'Entering and Manipulating Text,' for more information.)
