Typing on a path but retain the path itself


I am currently trying out typing on a path and I seem not to do what I want.

Is there an option where I could retain the path itself? I notice that typing on a path removes the path in preview mode. This is so that I could have a circular text with a circular path in it.

Accepted Answer

Simply reselect the path with the Direct Selection Tool and reapply a stroke or fill to it after you've added your text. The path is still there. However, adding Type on a Path to it removes all strokes and fills.
