How to 'rasterize' type in Ai: convert the type objects to actual objects?


Question

I have an illustration made out of letters. I want to turn those letterforms into normal objects, as in not type objects. I want to do this so any machine will be able to print my work, even if it doesn't have the fonts I used.

Accepted Answer

  • select your type object;
  • Type > Create Outlines or Shift+Ctrl/Cmd+O (as in the letter O, not a zero);
  • ungroup if necessary.
