Photoshop: Converting text to shape makes them all one color

I’m trying to use the Perspective and Distort functions on text, therefore I’m trying to convert the text to shapes in order to accomplish that.

When I did it though, it made all the text one color even though I had set multiple different colors to the letters:

After selecting “Convert to Shape” from the “Type” menu, I got this:

The letters that I had colored differently all changed to the same color. What’s the best workaround for this?

Answer

Converting text to a shape creates a single shape layer and a single shape layer can only be a single color (bar any effects or overlays etc)…

If you want distinct shapes with different colors then you need them to be their own shape layers. Simply duplicate your shape layer, change the colors and delete the parts you don’t need from each layer:
