Hi there, guys. In today's video, the final cut, we'll be looking at how to convert text to pass. Let's just have a quick intro here. Yeah, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. Uh, we have a variety of different software recover, and also we upload daily. So just keep your eye. Therefore, any new content. Well, I was we had back in the programme here. Now there's, um, three basic ways we can do this, but one, just one, uh, disclaimer and note before you guys go ahead, understand that once you convert text to a path, you can no longer edit the text, so it becomes a shape and you are not able to change things on it. So it's a destructive form of editing, but yeah, it's just good to keep that in mind. So now, the first and most easiest way or most common way, Mr Douglas, if we just select this top path and we go to our top drop down menu, we go to text. So, uh, convert text to outline. So it's basically like converting it to a part. We click that now we can see if we select our text to here. It's no longer editable. And then also, if we go to our layers panel, you can see here it's created a group out of it and inside the group it's a lot of layers. If we just quickly ian group this. So we've got to object and group. Now if we select our no to you can see that these are now notes. So there is no longer, um editable text. Just undo that. And I have second method as we can go here to path the union. Or do we have another video tour where we cover this tool? So if you're not sure how it works, you can just have a look there. Now select that. Now, if we look on our layers menu here, we can see that it is no longer editable. So if we go to our no tool, you can see now it's a lot of notes that we can edit and then the last way we can go on top, you to object. Then from the top, drop down. We go to merge Control shift B. We select this once again on our layers panel. You can see there is no longer able to edit, but a note we're gonna see is actually a power. Yeah, that's the basics on converting text two parts. There's three ways we can do that. Where to Our website. Here. You guys never get to softwaretraining.co.za. Today we find this video.
