How do I create font outlines in Adobe Illustrator?

When sending an Adobe Illustrator file to someone else, they'll only be able to view the artwork as you intended if they've either installed the fonts you've used, or if you've converted your fonts to outlines. 

To convert fonts to outlines (also sometimes called objects), follow the below steps:

  1. Choose the 'selection tool'
  2. Control click, or right click on your text
  3. Select 'Create Outlines'
  4. Make sure this step is followed for all fonts within the design.
