I'm trying to apply colors to parts of font.

The problem is with the letter 'p' here


I converted the letter to a vector shape with 'Create Outlines' and then cut it using the knife. I just can't get rid of the grayscale there.

For the letter 'a' I made a clipping mask, but the overlay is not accurate so I don't want to use that method.

  • I'm afraid there's really not enough information here to help. Check the Color panel to ensure the color is actually color. – Scott Apr 15 at 2:02
  • Have you tried selecting the shape and then Edit -> Edit Colors -> Convert to CMYK – SZCZERZO KŁY Apr 15 at 8:32
  • thank you!! that was exactly it. The Color panel was stuck in grayscale, and the steps suggested by SZCZERZO worked exactly. – treehugeer 2 days ago
