Extruding Text


Recommended Posts

Hi There,

Thanks for your reply, OK, yes i have the 'Truetype to Polylines' command in the drop down text menu, I am able to execute this command. I just cant extrude it. I just get the error message "there were objects selected that were locked or are illegal in extrudes and sweeps. They have been deselected"

Any ideas ?

If they have come in as symbols, you can edit the symbol to get at the geometry, depending on whether it is 2D or 3D you'll either TT to Polyline and then extrude as described above, or simply go right to the extrusion.

You won't be able to extrude the symbols directly from the outside.
