I have selected text and increased its size, eg, 5 to 6 point. Then part of text is missing.

The picture shows Porcupine. The letter 'e' is hidden after the size increase. I do not know how to fix it? Any suggestions?

It looks like Type on a Path.

Your path is too short. Use the Direct Selection Tool (white arrow) to extend the length of the path to allow more text to show.

  • Thanks Scott, really sorry but new to illustrator. How do i do that? I tried selecting with Direct selection tool but it just moved all the text.. There is a small + symbol in a box. – Jim Jan 9 '15 at 17:34
  • The red [+] indicates there is more text which is not visible. – Scott Jan 9 '15 at 17:37
  • Thanks. I tried again with Direct selection tool on the path anchor and it did not work. It just dragged the word around. – Jim Jan 9 '15 at 17:40
  • You aren't clicking in the right spot. You have to click the end point of the path. Watch the animation above. – Scott Jan 9 '15 at 17:41
  • Hi Scott,Thank you for your previous answer. I have been trying this on some text that is on a curved path but cannot seem to get the end points to stretch it out. Is there a different way of doing this? Thanks in advance! – Jim Mar 16 '16 at 21:45
