Default Outline Type

I have a few products that where the outputted PDF gets sent to a vendor for production. The vendor requires that all type be converted to outlines, does anyone know if there is a way to convert the variable text generated by FusionPro to outlines?

Yes, FusionPro can emit output with all text converted to outlines. However, this feature is available only with FusionPro Server (Producer API), with EPS 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.

Dan,
Thanks for the response. Do you know how I can accomplish this? I thought it would be in the composition settings. I see postscript as an output option, however I don't see an option to outline the type.

It's not an option available in the UI in FP Desktop/Creator. It's enabled via a setting in the CFG file for an FP Server composition. You need to compose to PDF and, at a minimum, add these two lines to the CFG file:
Code:
EPS_Output_Enabled=true
IMG_Output_OutlineText=true
You may also find the CFG settings IMG_Output_StartPage, IMG_Output_NumberOfPages, IMG_Output_SuppressPDF, IMG_Output_PDFBoundingBox, and IMG_Output_BaseFileName useful.
