Hello bright people,

Can anyone tell me if there's a way, when creating Outlines of text, for BULLETS to not disappear completely? Can we ask Adobe to work on this issue? Not sure I want the hassle of manually creating & superimposing a column of tiny circles.

Hi @BeckOzineedhelp,do you mean converting text into paths?If so, you just expierenced one of the reasons why you shouldn't outline in the first place.If you have to outline, for whatever reasons, do it in the PDF.Outlining text is not necessary unless you do maybe some sort of cut contour.

You can add special bullets (and colours) to a bulleted list via a Character Style, no need to outline.

The correct answer is, never outline text as you loose automatic bullets and numbers, paragraph rules, frames and shadows, xyou loose also text frame borders and areas and much more. Don't do that. Why would you do this? This is not necessarry, as it causes only problems, much more than mentioned.

There is a more reliable way of creating outlines from type that relies on Adobe Acrobat. The details can be found over at Creative Pro: https://creativepro.com/outlining-fonts-the-2016-edition/

 

I did write an article "outlining" (pardon the pun) the issues of outlining type recently on my blog: https://colecandoo.com/2021/02/15/outlining-the-problem-text-outlining/
