Not only... but also

I’d like your help in this grammar muddle. Which is correct? Are both structures correct?

1) She not only wrote the text but also selected the illustrations.

2) She didn't only write the text but also selected the illustrations

I got myself tangled up with this grammar issue. I’d really appreciate it if you could help me with this question.
