Dear Adobe team,
there is a huge bug! Wehn i transfer text into vecors, all the Numbers and bullets are missing. This causes a lot of problems, because i need to send files to the prnter with no real text in it.
Not a bug - it's expected behaviour and has been like that for years and years.
This is is a user to user forum - so nobody from Adobe development team (or rather very few) are on the forums.

As for text to outlines - there are many reasons - but converting your native file to Outlines really is messy relying on keeping 2 sets of files, one live text and one outlined.

CONVERTING FONTS TO OUTLINES IN A PDF FILE
- Open your PDF file in Acrobat Pro DC >>> Open the Print Production panel and click on Preflight.
- In the Search field at the top right of the Preflight dialog box, search for “outlines.” This selects the “Convert fonts to outlines” fixup.
Hope that helps
Have a good day
As an aside, unless your printer has equipment from 1995, you should not need to outline text.
However, if you must, follow Eugene's link to doing it in Acrobat Pro.
Apologies it was the wrong link for converting outlines
Well, here is the link to the updated article:
