Stock art almost always comes with the text converted to outlines. You can edit it as a regular vector shape by manipulating anchor points, but it is no longer editable as live text. Instead, you have to completely replace it with new text elements of your own. It might seem counter-intuitive for a company to offer text-based stock art with no live text, but these are usually intended more as a way to provide inspiration and save time by creating a framework for a specific style of graphic that you then finish with your own text elements.

  • It's also worth mentioning that many stock art providers forbid including live text in stock art as it introduces legal issues with third party licenses that they don't want to manage or be responsible for. – 13ruce Mar 10 at 12:31
