Hi Ladies – I’m on my last day/try of my Illustrator trial, a fellow bee did my program for me, big thing you to her, but I’m messing around with the colors, may want to make some if it a little darker. So how do you isolate one word out of a sentence to make that one word a different color?
For example, I want: you will hear some songs chosen by Sara and Jared. I want the Sara and Jared to be a darker grey. I was able to change the whole sentence but now just need to do a few wrds in each sentence.

Depends on whether your words are still editable text or have been created as outlines.
-Double click on words to get text cursor
-Highlight words to be changed
-Double click text
-At the top of your working window, you should see an arrow and the word
-You should now be able to select the individual letters of the words in your text and will be able to change the colours on a letter by letter basis.
-Change the colour of the words you want
-Click the arrow at the top (by ) to return to your regular document view
Hope that helps — I was trying to explain it as quickly as possible!

Crap, now what about just moving a sentence over. Like normally you hit the space bar and it just moves over…..but not so much in Illustrator..
Miss Molly?? THANKS!!

I’m learning but I think you get the arrow tool & click on the text so it brings up the blue box that holds it & then drag the box using the mouse. Or I use the arrow keys on the keyboard (on a Mac) to move it just a little. Does this work for you?
EDIT: That’s actually just to move all the text in the text box, so if you have other words in the sentence, that probably won’t work.

Yes, thank you! Not sure if what you said worked or not, but whatever I did it worked, lol:)
I’m so impressed with myself right now, lol
