In illustrator, i can create outline for text.

How should I do the same in Acrobat SDK?

You need to read the documentation on how to automate the Preflight plugi. Basically that’s via JavaScript and the AFExecuteThisScript() API.

Please note that outlining fonts has a lot of negative implications and should be considered a very last resort and then only used when printing.

In Adobe Acrobat DC Pro you can use the Preflight tool for this.

Yes.

I'm working on a Acrobat plug-in.

I want to know how to implement conversion text to outline in the plug-in.
