Creating a Continuous Gradient of a Group of Outlined Text
on Apr 15, 2009 at 9:50:24 pm

Maybe someone can help me with this one...
I have a group of outlined objects that I want to apply a continuous gradient to. When I select all the objects and apply the gradient it applies the gradient to every object instead of treating the object as a group.
How do I apply a continuous gradient to a set of separate objects?

I would appreciate any advice.
Thank you!

Hi,
select all the outlined objects, then go to OBJECT...COMPOUND PATH...MAKE. Then apply your gradient.
Hope that helps,
cheers,
Adi

Select the objects you would like to apply the gradient to, select the gradient in your swatches and use the Gradient tool (hotkey : g) to draw the gradient over all on the selected objects.

The compound path way (as offered by Adolf) also works, but this method is a bit less destructive.

I can see your spot colours...
