In Illustrator I used the
Type on path tool and typed a word on a black drawn line.
I have change the style of the brush the line is using and now I want to change the color of the line. The text and the line seem to have been merged into a single object and when I change the color of the selected object, only the font color changes, the line does not change.
If I move the text, the line moves with it. They seem to be one object but the text paints separately from the line.
How do I paint the line?
I have replicated the results in the screenshot below.
Created text on a line. Changed the brush stroke of the text, which added the effect visible in the bottom.
Changed the color of the stroke, which only edits the font stroke, not the brush that is now visible.
