Updating type created in Illustrator 10

Type objects created in Illustrator 10 and earlier are uneditable until you update them for use in later versions. After you update you have access to all the text features in Illustrator CS5 and later releases, such as paragraph and character styles, optical kerning, and full OpenType® font support.

You don’t have to update the text if you don’t need to edit it. Text that has not been updated is called legacy text. You can view, move, and print legacy text, but you can’t edit it. Legacy text has an x through its bounding box when selected.

After updating legacy text, you may notice some minor reflow changes. You can easily readjust the text on your own, or you can use a copy of the original text for reference. By default, Illustrator appends the word “[Converted]” to the filename whether or not you update the text in a file, effectively making a copy of your document to preserve the integrity of your original file. You can then choose to update the original later or, if you already updated it, go back to the original version.

note: If you don’t want Illustrator to append the filename, choose Edit > Preferences > General (Windows) or Illustrator > Preferences > General (Mac OS), and deselect Append [Converted] Upon Opening Legacy Files.

 

Update all legacy text in a document

  1. Do one of the following:
    • When opening the document, click Update when prompted by Illustrator.

    • After opening the document, choose Type > Legacy Text > Update All Legacy Text.

Update selected legacy text

  1. Do one of the following:
    • To update the text without creating a copy, select the type object and choose Type > Legacy Text > Update Selected Legacy Text. Alternatively, select a type tool and click in the text that you want to update, or double-click the text that you want to update using the Selection tool. Then click Update.

    • To preserve the legacy text on a layer below the updated text, select a type tool and click in the text that you want to update. Alternatively, double-click the text that you want to update using the Selection tool. Then click Copy Text Layer. This allows you to compare the layout of the legacy text to the updated text.

    If you create a copy of legacy text when you update it, you can use the following commands:

    • Type > Legacy Text > Show Copies or Hide Copies to show or hide the copied text objects.

    • Type > Legacy Text > Select Copies to select copied text objects.

    • Type > Legacy Text > Delete Copies to delete copied text objects.
