Using text curves and compression

The Publish To PDF feature lets you control how text is treated to PDF documents. If you are using unusual text characters, you can export the text as curves. This method does not use fonts, so this eliminates problems with font variances on different systems. However, for general document publication, you should include the fonts in a document rather than convert text to curves. Converting text into curves increases the complexity of the file and can increase file size. Compressing text is useful for reducing file size.

1 Click File, Publish To PDF.

2 Click the Objects tab.

3 Enable the Export Text As Curves check box in the Text And Fonts section.
