Default Possible to "Create Outlines" in output?

I have a project I do almost daily, that requires the output to have all the fonts be outlined, rather than type. So every day, I open the output file in Illustrator, select all and "convert to outlines". It just dawned on me today that there might be a smooth work around posted here. I can't find anything so I thought I'd ask.

These are 1 page pdfs, black and white only, and it's output for a vinyl cutter, so it's just purely outlines, nothing fancy.

I have other work arounds I do here too, but wondered if there wasn't a way I could just make the artwork *RIGHT* from the get go. I compose these files both on v. 3.something if I run them through the Server version, and I'm on v. 6.something if I run them thru desktop on my primary machine. Both are windows based.

Thanks in advance!

With FusionPro VDP Server, you can add these two lines to the CFG file for the composition:
This will generate an EPS file with outlines for each page of your output, next to the PDF output.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
