You can create text anywhere on the artboard.
Text cannot be positioned anywhere off the artboard.
If the preference that allows you to select text by clicking anywhere on the text is turned off, the only way to select text is by clicking on its baseline.
Text in Illustrator can never be positioned upside down.
Most text-based applications now offer the ability to generate text vertically.
A single word can be both tracked and kerned.
Once a word has been tracked, you can no longer apply kerning.
You can modify the tracking between letter pairs.
Positive tracking or kerning values move text characters closer together.
Kerning is less useful for large headlines than it is for body copy because larger text seldom requires kerning.
By definition, kerning affects the space between two characters.
Tracking inserts uniform spaces between characters to affect the width of selected words or entire blocks of text.
A negative value for the distance of the text's baseline in relation to the path "floats" the text above the path.
A positive value for the distance of the text's baseline in relation to the path moves the text below the path.
Gradients that you create can be saved with a name of your choice.
Gradients created in one document cannot be used in a different document.
Gradients can be named and saved in the Color panel.
A blend is a graduated transition between two or more colors used to fill an object or multiple objects.
The colors used in a gradient are represented in the Gradient panel by small house-shaped icons called locations.
In the above figure, a 50% horizontal scale has been applied to the text. This means that the text was wider before the scale was applied.
In the above figure, a 50% vertical scale has been applied to the text. This means that the text was shorter before the scale was applied.
Hiding objects is one way of making it easier to select objects on the artboard.
Hidden objects will print only if you activate the Print Hidden Objects preference in the Preferences dialog box.
Hidden objects are automatically saved when you close a document, but they are deleted when you quit Illustrator.
When you click the Show All command, all the hidden objects are selected when they are revealed.
Text flowed on a curved line will often require kerning, especially when it is set at a large point size.
In the Gradient panel, the gradient slider has at least four colors.
The Stroke panel is where you move sliders to mix new colors for fills, strokes, and gradients.
The Color panel has four color modes: CMYK, RGB, Grayscale, and HSB.
Press [Ctrl] (Win) or [Command] (Mac) to toggle between a type tool and the selection tool.
You can change the stacking order by moving objects forward and backward through the stack, one object at a time.
Once text is flowed into an object, you can no longer manipulate the object as you would have previously.
Once text has been flowed into an object, you can still manipulate the fonts and font size of the object.
When text is flowed into an object, you can no longer use the Direct Selection tool to distort the shape.
It is impossible to create a document with text but without fonts.
When you click the Gradient tool, the gradient control bar appears in the object itself.
Even after text is converted to outlines, you can still change the typeface.
If you plan to scale type, you should change its font size in the Character panel, if necessary, before converting to outlines.
The most recently created object is automatically placed above all the other objects on the artboard.
Once text is flowed onto a path, only its typeface and type size can be modified.
Text flowed onto a curved path often presents kerning challenges.
Dragging the center bracket is the easiest way to move text along a path.
Text can be flipped across a path by dragging the center bracket of the text across the path.
The midpoint is identified on the gradient slider by a triangle.
The location of a midpoint in a gradient can be changed.
The midpoint, by definition, must be positioned evenly between the starting and ending colors of a gradient.
A linear gradient can be positioned from left to right, top to bottom, or on any angle.
You can define the angle of a radial gradient in the Gradient panel.
When you convert text to outlines and apply a gradient fill, the gradient automatically fills each letter independently.
All open Illustrator documents are listed at the bottom of the Window menu.

70. The specification for all body copy in a series of ten related fliers - all designed in Illustrator - calls for 11pt type with 12.5pts leading and -10 tracking. One of the designers flows body copy text into the main text box on flier number five, formats it, then realizes that one paragraph is overflowing the text box.
