BUG?: Designer Keeps converting text to outlines

Recommended Posts

I've noticed this happening frequently in Designer 1.71.

  1. Create some text
  2. Click off it
  3. Text has been converted to outline shapes and is no longer editable?

Is this is a known bug or is it a "feature"? if the latter it is very poorly designed and extremely irritating as I often need to go back and edit text but I have to delete and recreate it every time.

There's no bug, but I suppose you do a lot the shortcut ctrl+enter with a text object selected, and it ends up being converted to curves.

That might be it. I'll give it a go. Thanks!

Thanks - as you can probably tell I'm coming from Illustrator where "Ctrl+Enter" = "commit changes"!

Yes this is common mistake by Illustrator users.
