Cannot edit text anymore after saving file in v.9 and 10 ?? None of the usual culprits!
Posted on 2004-11-02
I'm coming back to Illustrator after (too long) a hiatus, so maybe I've missed some new wrinkle in possible consequences, but I've been told (though I have my doubts) that there exists some way of saving, or saving as, which renders all the text uneditable, or permanently locked, forever after. Is this possible?
Let me hasten to add, the file is not "locked," there are no keystrings or passwords applied, the file content is not locked, or grouped, or otherwise on a locked layer, or sublayer, yet none of the text boxes respond to the Text Tool, instead a new text box is initiated. The text boxes can, however, be copied and pasted, though no matter to where, from v.9 to 10, or vise-versa, they still cannot be edited.
This is something that has to go to press immediately so your help is essential ! Thanks.
