Hello Pradeep,
If I get you right. You are looking to have a lil more control over your text by eithering making it into just an outline or a path.

I'd suggest you stick to to the outline, if you have further plans to edit it later.
Simple go to to text toolbar area, deselect the fill color and add an outline color. This way the inner section of the text looks transparent as you'd want it.

Do let me know if this works for you.

I believe what Pradeep was wondering was can you convert text into a vector shape (commonly referred to in Illustrator as "create outlines")? 

Seems as though this function does not yet exist as searching for it has led me here. Add it to the list?

Thanks so much for clearing this up, Tony! You're right in finding that this functionality isn't currently available in Studio.

However, we are currently tracking a feature request to add Convert to Outlines functionality to Strokes and Text in Studio. That being said, I will get a ticket opened on your behalf to track your interest for this potential feature. Please keep an eye out for an email confirming that we've formally tracked your need for this.

Thanks again,
