Using Adobe Illustrator: How to Convert Text to Outlines

Converting text to outlines is very easy in Illustrator. The “PRO” text in the graphic shown below (left) has a blue line underneath it. This shows that the text is made up of a typeface, not a graphic. The little blue square at the left end of the line indicates that the text is ranged left. If the type were centred, the little square would be in the middle of the line.
