Wondering where to find the convert all text to curves option in X9.
I know if was an extension in x8. Can someone tell me where to find or where to download please?
To clarify: I need the text to be exported to a third party, who does not have the same font. So when they receive the art, it comes in as curves.
Have you looked in the Scripts docker?
In both my 2019 and 2020 installations, I see Calendar Wizard, Color Chart Creator, Convert All to Curves, and File Convertor.
What kind of art file are you sending them? What applications are they going to be using to open it?It's not hard to convert text to curves in CorelDRAW. I usually just select a type object and hit Ctrl-Q to convert it to curves, be it an "artistic text'' object or a block of paragraph text. You can select multiple type objects at the same time and press the Ctrl-Q keyboard shortcut to convert all of it to curves.Again, what application will be used to open the exported file? Will it be a PDF? You can embed font data into a PDF. If the person is placing it into Adobe Illustrator the fonts can remain intact. Adobe Illustrator has a very clever trick in its Flatten Transparency dialog box where any embedded fonts in a placed PDF can be converted to outlines. It's a very very handy feature in Illustrator.
Corel also has an option when importing text to convert to curves. I always convert text to curves on Publish to PDF. Embedding just creates all kinds of problems.
If the PDF is going to contain significant amounts of paragraph text or even large amounts spanning multiple pages it will make a difference in file sizes by embedding the fonts.
On occasions that I have to import PDF artwork I still prefer using Adobe Illustrator. Some PDFs are the variety saved from Illustrator that contain Illustrator data. Obviously it's best to use Illustrator to open those. All of the others typically have a myriad of technical problems that are time consuming to fix. Astute Graphics' Vector First Aid plug-in for Illustrator can automatically fix most of the problems. That translates to a lot less manual fixing of the artwork.
