When you try to convert to path, are you doing it on the Text object or the Vector?
I could not convert at all
You mention an alpha: is it a vector alphabet or a font?
I dont know the different. What do you mean ?
Could you post a screenshot of the Layers palette with all the layers “open” (click on any little triangle on the left of any layer)? – when i do as in my image below i can convert to path and use the vector tube script.
Below is my new screenshot that works.
