Dear Experts,

 

Now i am doing indesign job in the cs6, it is only editable from previous edition application file (Text only change). In this case most of the text done for outline text format in the previous version application file,  but i need editable text format for update the new text.

 

Is it any possible for outline text format in to normal text format, or available any script related this? It is very helpful for us.

 

Kindly advise.

Once converted to outlines, InDesign cannot convert back to live text. Your best bet is probably to export to PDF and try to do OCR in Acrobat, then export to Word and see if you can recover the text that way.
