    Curve All Text in Acrobat Without any External Plugins

    First you have to add a watermark in the file.

    If you are using Acrobat X Pro, go to menu

    View->Tools->Pages->Watermark

    In Add Watermark window, as you can see in the image select text and add some space then keep the Opacity to 0%.

    Press OK

    After that run the Flatterner Prview

    View->Tools->Print Production->Flatterner Preview

    In the Flatterner Preview window, just tick the Convert All Text to Outlines and Convert All Strokes to Outlines

    Now you can select the page range and Apply.

    I would always prefer using pitstop or pdfToolbox if available. This is a workaround for those who don’t have those plug-ins.

    These workaround, using the "outline fonts" option available in the transparencies flattening also works with InDesign.

    In both softwares the system is the same:
    - first, simply add somewhere on the page an empty white object with active transparency, either with a transparency of 0,1% or an opacity of 99,9% (watermark with PDF, a block in the layer with InDesign),
    - second, create a transparency flattening setting with the outline font option activated,
    - third, trigger the flattening (as shown in Acrobat, or while printing with the outlining-flattener-setting selected): the transparent object on each page will make the transparency flattener act on each page and the flattening will outlines the fonts.


    But, as already said, it is only a workaround, only for those who don't have PitStop!

    Again, IT'S ONLY A WORKAROUND, not a real method... PitStop is, of course, much, much, much, better !

    Ok

    but I suggest to anyone will use the Flattener Preview backup your files before use it. Flatterner preview cant undone!
    And many times can destroy your files.
    BEWARE!

    WRONG!!

    Many font when curved (scripts fonts in special) apresent some overlap nodes.
    Pitstop view every character as single object, not as a group. That way has no overlap nodes when curve fonts.

    3. Callas PDF toolbox

    very good, easy, effective. (i think the method from jobousephk is WRONG)
