[By Design] Adding text to a shape

Recommended Posts

When I add text with Artistic tool to a shape in AD the background colour disappears . I'm trying to add text to a coloured Donut using the Artistic tool  

Thanks Jimmy

When you add Artistic Text to a shape, the shape is converted to a path, so it doesn’t have either a stroke or a fill. You need to duplicate the shape first, and then add the text to the duplicate.
