I get that, and I've seen it first hand. Our Onyx RIP will not always produce a vector file, especially a complex one with lots of transparency, layers, drop shadows, etc. Something goes wrong in the flattening process and things get omitted or it produces the inverse of what's expected.

Thanks for the file. If you can't outline I guess the only other option is to rasterize the type.
Here's an Action List to convert Type 3 fonts to images, it's set to 600 dpi so you  might want to change that. Seems to work ok.

Thanks, that worked like a charm! And, bonus, it just got approved late in the day so I didn't have to rasterize the whole lot of them entirely.

Always nice to hear when it works.
Gives me a nice warm fuzzy feeling going into the weekend!

Although that could just be the Red Wine.   :rolleyes:
