Hi, i would like to know why this happens when I turn text into curves. The lines get thicker. 

Fonts have hinting instructions to display them better on low resolution devices.

If you outline the font, the hinting stops working and the font looks fatter/more irregular.

Zoom in and you won't notice it.
