    So I picked up some labels from a stock site.

    Look like liquor bottle labels.

    They have a buncha vectorized text like "SAMPLE TEXT" blah blah.

    So I open up the AI file, an ungroup the objects.

    Is there anyway I can "Un-create" outlines so the Sample Text is editable with the text cursor tool?

    AI treats each letter of a word as its own shape_object. So does that mean it all has to be deleted, typed in, then 'create outline' ?

    Do I lose the sample fonts?

    There isn't a way to "un-create" outlines in AI. Once text has been converted to outlines, it is a shape as you say, so you will need to retype.

    If there are effects being applied to the outlined text that you want to preserve, before ungrouping the Sample Text, select it and take a look at the Appearances palette. If there is any, at least you can copy the effects and apply to your new text.

    Hope that helps.

    Bad luck. Find the font on the net and re-type again.
