In order to create text in Adobe Illustrator, you’ll need to use the type tool. To do this, go ahead and click to select the type tool from your toolbox and then up here, you’re going to get some selections. The first one is color, click on that down arrow and you’ll have swatches you can pick the color of, go ahead and click to select one. And you can set a stroke and then the color of the stroke, however, that’s going to override your text color. You also, let me go ahead and click here, you also have a couple options here. Click on character and you could go ahead and you could change the font. You also could change if you want to have it italic, demibold or demibold and italic. You could change the size here. You can also the leading if you’d like. In here, we have the kerning, we have the tracking, you could choose the scale horizontally and vertically. You can change the baseline shift, you can change the character rotation, you can do—choose to have it underline or a strikethrough. So there’s lots of different options here as far as character, so you could get text just like how you want to.
If you click on paragraph, then you could go ahead and you could change your alignment up here. You also have your indentions that you can change as well as the space before and after the paragraph, and then if you want to have automatic hyphens put in. So once you’re happy with your settings, go ahead and click where you’d like to add text on your canvas and then begin typing with your keyboard, and that’s how you add text in Adobe Illustrator.
