The New Touch Type Tool in Illustrator CC

Check out the new Touch Type tool in Illustrator with Terry White, Adobe Design Evangelist, as he shows how it works on the new Wacom Cintiq 22 HD Touch. You don’t need a direct touch device to use this new feature in Illustrator CC, but if you do, it makes the Touch Type tool even more intuitive and organic to use.

    Hi, I cannot find the touchtype tool on my version even though I have the most up to date software? Can you help?

      Hi Jim.
      Goto type tool panel and select last option (Touch Type Tool) or press Shift+T.

    I feel like touch type is one of the features we’ve been waiting for the longest in Adobe Illustrator. I think it will definitely improve a lot of logo design and typography workflows going forward.
