I am trying to create a 3D ribbon effect on my typed text (I used the font called Sacramento) and I am following this tutorial: http://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/create-a-silky-ribbon-text-effect--vector-3771
I thought I was following the tutorial exactly, but I am getting hung up at step 3 and 4. I can't seem to fill the divided shapes with a gradient that stops and starts where I divided the path. Instead the gradient goes all the way across the font until the second "L" in Cinderella. Any guidance would be appreciated!
Here is a screenshot:
