Cannot add an outline to a shape that has become a path.

Recommended Posts

In Affinity Design for Windows I created a shape and gave it an outline. I then I messed around and put text on its path. It changed it so that now - there is no colored stroke/no line and I cannot re-add a stroke or fill it. What am I doing wrong?

When the shape is turned to a text path, only the shape's node info is retained to let the text flow on it. You need to duplicate the shape, and paste the copy back in with its fill and stroke.
