    Default Illustrator newbie, can't figure out typeface from Adobe Stock

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to add text to a pre drawn business logo and earlier today purchased this one from Adobe Stock (link below). However, I downloaded the file and opened it in illustrator, and all I can see is literally the image shown in the link. How can I actually use this style of writing and type in my own words?

    So sorry for naivety, I'm well versed in photoshop but Illustrator is new to me!

    Did you INSTALL the font, or just open it.

    Right click on the downloaded font and choose INSTALL.

    There is no font to install as far as I can tell. It's an AI file that Just opens to show you the exact "lollipop" image with alphabet below it as shown in the link?

    In that case, it looks like you may have to pull in and position each individual letter one by one. They are vector, so they should resize and recolour easily. It does seem quite expensive for what you received though.

    I don't want the word "lollipop", I want totally different words. I naively assumed I was downloading a template where I could change the words. Was I totally wrong? Many thanks!

    You should have all the individual letters ... They are ALL shown in the original drawing. You should be able to pull in all the letters from the original.

    However, I would not have assumed that that was what I was buying ... Seems my week for talking about wrong assumptions!
