Separate each letter of a text to its own layer
I feel like there is a simple solution but I can't find it basically what the title says. I select the text and select release to layers (sequence) and nothing happens or just creates a new layer inside it and moves the whole text in there. I can't ungroup them its greyed out as well.
Reason: want to separate it so I can then import it to After Affects and animate the logo/text. If that's possible, lastly is there a way I can separate the text with a Arc Lower Warp applied keep the same effect.
A line of text is seen as one object in Illustrator.
If you want each character as a separate object, you need to create separate text objects for each character.
Type > Create Outlines will convert the text object to vector shapes, then each shape can be manipulated.
Object > Expand will convert text in an envelope to vector shapes, which can then be manipulated individually.
