I was wondering how to convert text to a mesh? I have tried using a variety of keys including Alt + C but no Convert To Mesh option appears. (new blender noob user here)

  • $\begingroup$ It works for me. It doesn't EXACTLY say "Convert To Mesh" but you should get a popup menu with two options. Are you on a Mac or Windows? $\endgroup$ – Dale Cieslak Aug 18 '18 at 23:02

    $\begingroup$ Only works in Object mode. In Edit mode the menu will not popup. Could it be this? Or maybe your text is a mesh already... $\endgroup$ – LeoNas Aug 19 '18 at 1:31

To convert the text, press Alt+C in Object mode with the text selected, and select "Mesh from Curve/Meta/Surf/Text", this will convert the text to a 3d mesh and you will not be able write letters like before.
