My client needs a translation document in Illustrator EPS; and says:"you need to save it in curves, outlines."

I have never used Illustrator before. I downloaded a trial version from the Net. I managed to put all the texts in the Illustrator; and was able to save it as a EPS file. However, I do not know how to save it in curves, outlines. Could somebody tell me how to do it? Thank you very much in advance!

There is a tutorial for it Nov 18, 2004

Hi! Adobe website offers also tutorials, few can be downloaded and few others are on purchase basis.The best would be the adobe community forum. There you might find all the suitable answers. Personally I prefer the .pdf saving option than the .ps. It is easier to work with.

Thank you so much! Nov 21, 2004

I've followed lukasz's guide. I believe I have solved the bit of "outlines". What about the bit of "convert text to curves"? I did a Google search. My impression was that it was the same thing as "convert text to outlines". Could someone confirm this? Thanks!
