Rasterizing text problem?

This is going to sound totally ridiculous to you but i’ve got a problem where i created some text then selected break apart so that i could animate the letters individually but when i test the movie and hover over the text the cursor changes into a text icon,… almost as if i could drag and copy the text like a word programme! Is there any option where i can make it rasterized so the cursor stays the same?

Cheers for any help
