    Type loosing effects when converted to outline


      Hi guys


      I have a poster that features a headline, using a stroke and drop shadow effect.


      Normally, before making an X1A PDF for print, I convert all text to outline, just to ensure there are no font issues on the print end.


      When I convert this headline containing the effect to outline, all effects (stroke and shadow) disappear.


      Any reason why?


      When making my X1A PDF without converting to outline, I see the text is still editable in Acrobat. Which means fonts could corrupt on the printer's end, right?


      Thanks in advance.
