I have purchased stock graphics of playing cards, but would like to change a few index letters (A, K, Q, J) to the corresponding French/German/etc. characters.
In Adobe Illustrator 2020, first I click the index letter with Selection Tool (V) and immediately see the bounding box:
I understand that it is difficult to identify the exact font used to create the original graphics, but I would like to at least keep my new letter in the same bounding box and alignment.
However when I click at the Type Tool (T), the bounding box disappears and I cannot just type at my keyboard and replace the text:
What would be the easiest way for an AI newbie like myself to replace the text there?
