When it comes to working with text, it is very important that the text is editable for it to work.
There is a way to make text non-editable, but this is something that you do not want to happen by accident.

other guys in today's video and truth that already works. We're gonna be looking at some editable text and non editable text. And yeah, before that, let's have a quick intro first. Yeah, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za c o dot z A. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates otherwise, back on the programme here. Now, just a quick reminder. This is a miniseries on the text tool and, uh, we'll also be leaving relevant links and descriptions. You guys can actually follow along. Now when it comes to the topic of edible and non editable text, it is important to know how it happens that your text becomes non editable so that you don't actually do that in future or if you did want to, you know how to go about it. So now with basic text, if it is selected, you can simply with your selection to double click it and the edit menu will pop up for the text. Now, we can make some extreme changes to this. So let me just, uh, try and do that. Uh, let's go here and to transform, Try skew it. Esco sent apply. What do we do? Their situation of my apologies skew it as well. And then we can even just for the one of it, rotate it. So now, as you can imagine, this takes quite edited. So now if we double click this, you'll notice that we can actually still edit this text so we can add letters to it. And so and, uh, that is the great thing of this, uh, method of working. Is that your text you can still edit after you've done some extreme changes. But when something comes non editable, that means we can no longer edit that text properties. Now, this one is still editable cause I haven't broken it yet, but I will show you now, starting to keep in mind. Once you make this non editable, you cannot make it re edit a ball so that you will have to remake the text. So in order to do that is rather simple. All we have to do is go to our top. Uh oh. Here we go to one group and group the text. Now, as you can see, this is individual letters and then also, if we go to the note Oh, jeez, no editor can, uh, notes as we can actually edit the notes. So now let's say okay, we're gonna undo that. So we select the text, we regroup it with the middle button. Now it is glued back together. So we've just to reverse the process double click this and then you will see we no longer get text. Yeah, for the edit text pop up menu. So this text, in essence, is now just the shape it's no longer takes. So you cannot change these letters unless you manually go with notes and so forth. You can obviously on group this this is nice. But if you want to do re spacing and stuff like that so there is a place for it Get me wrong. But in general, while you're working on text, you wanna rather keep this? I'm editable as long as you can. And yeah, as you can see there, we've got quite different approach. We have to take these things to edit it now. So, yeah, that's pretty much covers that. So just a quick recap. Once you're on group text with one group button it is no longer editable. Even if you re group, the only way to undo that is you have to physically use your control Z or the Andrew Buttons on top here. And that's presuming you can still undo that fall back, and then we can see maybe we're luckier. Let's try. Okay, so we have to undo even more well under until the two is gone. There we go. So now this should be fine. But if you've saved your final, you come back in all these undoes gets reset. So, um, or if you just say that if you've saved the programme and you've closed it or file, then it will no longer be able to undo that far back. So, yeah, that's the main difference between the two. Um, good way to work in the final product. You always do this in case you don't know if your clients are gonna have a font or anything. I get on the system, make sure you do that on a backup. So just go file save as name it a new name, but yeah, otherwise, we had here to softwaretraining.co.za c o dot z. You guys will notice. We've got a variety of different software to recover, and also you can isolate your search on the top, right?
