Printer in China needs InDesign fonts to be outlined. When I do this the lines below as paragraph rules disappear. I have looked around and it seems like a known bug. It doesn't do this in AI. I can package up with fonts, but they seem to want the pdf.

Use Acrobat to convert the text to outlines (if you ACTUALLY need it)

I never usually need to do this for local printers.. I have packaged it up but I think they may further ask for it.. I will look into doing it in the acrobat as you said.

It's not a bug - it's worked that way since InDesign came on the market - you can request a feature update here - https://indesign.uservoice.com/

 

In the meantime - JMlevy gives good advice - do the conversion in Acrobat. https://www.copperbottomdesign.com/blog/converting-fonts-to-outlines

I concur with the other posters here that the most reliable way to accomplish this task is to use Adobe Acrobat's preflight feature to convert text to outlines. Here is an article from InDesignSecrets that outlines (pardon the pun) method: https://indesignsecrets.com/outlining-fonts-the-2016-edition.php
