Changing Colour of outline text in Illustrator


New Member
Hey guys,
I was wondering if anybody knows what I'm doing wrong. I changed my type to outlines to edit it and now for some reason I can only change the colour from black to grey.... what's going on?
What software are you do this in?

I'm assuming illustrator, if so then select all object>Click Filter>Colours>Convert to CMYK/RGB (Depending on it's output use).
