How do I Un-do 'create outlines' to the text? I created outlines before saving as PDF for printing. Now I need to undo this. InDesign will not allow me to 'revert' to last saved version. The file has been closed and re-opened, computer has been shut down and re-started. Any solutions? URGENT - thanks - ron

You'll have to go back to an earlier version of the file, if it exists. If the file was closed, there's no chance of restoring the outlines. It's like trying to restore an egg after it's already scrambled!

Thanks for the response. . . . Not what I wanted to hear,but at least I can stop trying to push this rock up the hill again and again. . . . Now I can put the time into rebuilding the files. Yes, they were the only copies. DRATs

Also, it sounds like it was your printer who steered you wrong. If you create a PDF file, there's no need to outline fonts. Fonts are automatically embedded in InDesign, and no outlining is necessary. It's a waste of time, and it can subtly degrade the quality of the type because of the loss of hinting.

You could always have the best of both worlds. Select "convert Fonts to Outline" in the transparency flattener when postscrripting or exporting. This gives a better result when compared to manually converting. It does however require some element of transparency on the page to force the text through the flattener. If the doc is transparency free, create a small white box and set it to multiply, thus causing transparency.

As for supplying pages to magazine publishers, try sending it via Quickcut (quickcut.com). If the magazine doesn't have Quickcut, point them to the website.
