when i type numbers in illustrator and mix it with language that is not english it disappeared after create outline...
Might be a specific issue with your Hebrew and RTL writing vs. conventional Western fonts. I'd start by checking the relevant font/ glyph panels for automatic substitutions and that. If the layout changes as you toggle these options you may be able to figure out what triggers the behavior. Of course also do the obvious - try with different fonts.
but it's happening with every font , even with google fonts...
It happened to me too. I worked around that by creating the numbers in seperate text box but that's not really a solution
This is a big problem.
I know a lot of people on Windows and Mac who have the same problem.
It causes a lot of errors, a waste of time, rejects, and loss of money.
I don't understand why Adobe is not fixing this huge bug.
Does it also happen when you use Object > Flatten transparency to outline fonts? You need to check the option "Outline text"
OMG! You've solved the problem. Hurray!
Thank you very much. I will spread the gospel until Adobe fixes the issue from within Create Outlines.
Thank you so much
Flatten transparency is not alwaye true.
in some caese this method convert digits!!!
I have the same bug since the last update. The flatten transparency works for now until thay fix this. Thanks!
right that works but why the normal way doesnt?...
Guys, I am also facing the same issue but not in Hebrew, its in English (number) itself. After creating "Threaded text" of the numbers for calendar I wanted to make creat outline and all the numbers dissapares. Here I've uploaded a few screen shots. Please help me with effective solutions. I'm using latest version of Illustrator in MAC. Thanks
Did you read the complete thread? And try out everything?
Before creating oultine set the kerning between two lines to "Metrics - Roman Only" then create outline. it will fix the issue.
I retyped all numbers as separatge line, save and convert to outline, it didnot disappear now.
I did the same and it worked.
but it was too early to celebrate as it didn't work on other occasions.
Thus this solution is not comprehensive I'm afraid.
Does it work when you Flatten transparency?
Yes. But it's very tedious going individually on objects rather than, as we were used to do, select everything, create outlines and be sure that nothing is missing.
Youcanselect text objects with the commands in Select > Object> Text. And then use Flatten transparency on them.
Thanks. That's a good idea and I knew the trick.
However, in the world of packaging, I like to keep panels on separate layers.
This command groups all text in one layer, one group, which is a little undesirable for me.
But the questions that beg to be asked, are:
Is Adobe working on this predicament?
When are we going to have a real solution and not a workaround?
I'm not Adobe. 95% of the forum is not even staff. So we can only help you with workarounds.
Please report this as a bug via http://illustrator.uservoice.com
The engineers are the only ones who can do anything about it.
happens to me too (hebrew. also in prices! but not only) but seldom...
