@RohitRojal – the question here is: what is the *real* purpose for creating outlines here?
If you want outlines in an exported PDF (why at all?), do it with Transparency Flattening when using Export to PDF.
Layout is maintained, all glyphs are rendered to paths.
See the following blog post to do it *right*:
However, if you have not InDesign CS4 installed, it could be a problem migrating a working "Transparency Flattening Preset" to InDesign CS5, CS5.5 and CS6. If you have installed CS4, make it work in CS4 and use the same preset file in the versions above. That should work. For InDesign CC all thiese prescriptions aren't tested yet…
Also possible: do the flattening in Acrobat Pro.
This is quite an annoying issue that needs to be solved, I only use InDesign CC 2014 to design labels. I work with nutritional tables on labels and the printers always ask to convert and I cant, and often come across errors once printed.
HOWEVER I just figured out a temporary solution till adobe fixes the issue in InDesign.
Here's what you can do:
- Copy your table into Illustrator
- Remove the text that only the table borders and fills stay behind
- Select all and copy it back to InDesign and align it with your table, group it and send to back
- Select your original table in InDesign, click ctrl **** O (Shortcut for outlines) the text will be converted but still leaves the original text box with the table behind it, delete this text box
- Group your table frame which you imported from illustrator with the text converted in indesign and you have a fully converted table in InDesign
Its quite a long way round, but its basically the only way to do it at this stage without having to redraw the entire thing.
