I'm running ID CS6, v. 8.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.6.8. When I try to convert type to outlines, the Create Outlines option is grayed out. Also, it says 'Create Outlines menu' instead of just 'Create Outlines'.
I tried selecting the text box as well as just highlighting the text but neither worked. I also tried different fonts to make sure it wasn't font specific.
I trashed preferences and saved data and restarted. No change.
Link to setting outline text up
But I think in Indesign 6 this no longer works, not sure have not upgraded as yet.
We use Font Explorer X Pro. No other plug-ins.
I tried replacing the create outlines plug in, but that didn't work. Then I went to Extensions Manager, and for some reason Create Outlines was not enabled. Not sure how that happened. Once I enabled it, everything seemed to work OK.
Thanks for your help.
