How do I use radial gradient to fill text in Illustrator?
For example I have the word "silver", and I would like to apply a radial gradient to it which would make s and r dark, i and e lighter, and l and v really light. When I simply outline type, and then click on radial gradient, then each letter gets the full gradient, instead of the gradient spreading over the entire word.

Try selecting the group of outlined letters with the selection tool (v), then clicking the button that my mouse is on in this screenshot to add a new fill. This should add the gradient to the group instead of the individual letters.
Edit: I guess the cursor doesn't show in screenshots, but it's to the right where the little "add new fill" callout is.

gradient without outlines
You do not have to create outlines to get a gradient on text. Create your text, go to appearance panel and ADD a fill above "Characters" then choose your gradient options. You can also use the gradient tool to modify the gradient.
This will apply the gradient to the entire word and the text is still editable.
