I shift+a and added a Text, then I alt+c to convert it into a mesh.

Even though the object is not interconnected, it is considered as a single object.

My goal is to make each letter a single object so I can perform a rotation animation on each one letter separately.

How do I separate them?



With converted Text to Mesh go to Edit Mode, Select All (A) then hit P and choose 'By loose parts'.

    $\begingroup$ If the text has any extrusion, between select all and separate by loose parts, you would also want to remove doubles to get the front, back and side pieces joined together. $\endgroup$
