# How do I change a compound path back to text?

I'm trying to edit my designer's artwork by changing the "5" into a "4". I have the font installed already.

When I try to open the design file in AI and highlight the "5", to my surprise it isn't a text object. It looks like it's something called a compound path. How would I update it's type so I can type "4" in it?

(Other than choosing Undo immediately after you've converted the text to outlines. However, if the file has been closed and then reopened, there's nothing which with invert the outline function.)
