Text Cut Off

Asked by Mary Vance on 2018-05-08

When typing anything in texts similar to Amarilla, Magnolia Sky, etc., the top and bottom of the text box gets cut off. What do I need to do in order to resolve this issue? Thank you.

The issue will go away when the text is converted to a path (Object > Object to Path). After this action, you can no longer type in the text, because it is now just a group of paths.

So before you do that, if there's a remote chance that you will some day want to edit the text again, either save a copy of the file (if it's finished), or put the original text into another layer that you lock and hide. That way, if you want to make changes, you can copy the original text back and edit it as a text.

Can you help with this problem?
