How to Convert Fonts to Curves / Outlines in Adobe Illustrator

How to Convert Fonts to Curves / Outlines in Adobe Illustrator

 

This article will show you how to outline your type in Adobe Illustrator. When you have your document open, go ahead and select all the text elements on the artboard. Once they are selected, go under the Type menu and select Create Outlines. You can also achieve this using the keyboard shortcut CTRL-SHIFT-O (for windows) or CMD-SHIFT-O (for macs).

 

 

You will know you have successfully outlined your fonts when the Underline disappears from beneath the text and each letter is outlined individually like the example image below.

 

 

And that's it! You have outlined your type and you are ready for print.
