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. 

Converting fonts to outlines is usually the best option to maximise compatibility, follow the below steps to do so:

  1. Choose the 'selection tool' (the solid arrow)
  2. Control click, or right click on your text
  3. Select 'Create Outlines'
