I'm having issues trying to remove the stroke from my text which has no stroke set. I've also tried different fonts however the stroke(or outline?) remains the same.

How can I go about removing this?

Stroked Font

  • I had the same issue sometimes with some fonts on Indesign, did you try restarting Illustrator? If nothing happen, restart the computer. – user120647 Jun 5 '18 at 22:38
  • @Danielillo Unfortunately that did not fix the issue. – Errol Green Jun 5 '18 at 22:42
  • Are you using a special font manager? – user120647 Jun 5 '18 at 22:53

    Are you in the outline mode/view? – Harley Jun 6 '18 at 1:51

    I've never seen this. Must be a setting somewhere you have or the font is bad.. or some third party voodoo. Can't be outline mode because live type is solid in outline mode. – Scott Jun 6 '18 at 1:54

In the menu at the top of your screen, go to "View." When in "View" ensure that you're in "GPU Preview." If you see "Outline", then you're in the wrong screen.

    If the OP was in outline mode, the editable text would appear solid and the area outside the artboard would be white. – zeethreepio Jun 6 '18 at 18:38
  • Hmmm. I see. If the text has been outlined my pix are correct. However if the text has not been outlined then you're correct, @zeethreepio – Harley Jun 6 '18 at 18:43

    Based on the OP's image, it appears that the text is still editable and "create outlines" is still an option. – zeethreepio Jun 6 '18 at 18:58
  • @zeethreepio My impression is that the text is highlighted for an adjustment. Which is why it shows up as outlined. But, if it were not selected, it would be all white. If that were the case, placing it on a color, and deselecting it, the 'outline' would disappear. – Norman Edward Jun 10 '18 at 11:15
