Can Acrobat convert text to outlines? Need help... - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I'm in a catch 22 and need some help - desparately. I have a PDF file a client sent but something is wrong with the way the fonts are embedded in it. When I open it in Acrobat everything is fine, but when send it to my ripping program it tells me I have to substitute the fonts. I tried opening in Illustrator 10 but it says, "Fonts with foreign encodings have been reencoded. Missing Type 1 fonts have been substituted with teh default font." I presume the "missing Type 1 fonts" are missing on my end since Acrobat can ...

    I'm in a catch 22 and need some help - desparately.

    I have a PDF file a client sent but something is wrong with the way the
    fonts are embedded in it. When I open it in Acrobat everything is fine, but
    when send it to my ripping program it tells me I have to substitute the
    fonts. I tried opening in Illustrator 10 but it says, "Fonts with foreign
    encodings have been reencoded. Missing Type 1 fonts have been substituted
    with teh default font."

    I presume the "missing Type 1 fonts" are missing on my end since Acrobat can
    open the file with no issue.

    The only thing I can think of would be if Acrobat (I have v. 5.0) can
    convert fonts to outlines (much like Illustrator). Is this possible? Or is
    there a better workaround?

    Thanks to anyone who can help...I'm at my wit's end.

    Ask the client to resend the PDF with the fonts embedded in it. Apparently
    they did not embed the right fonts into the PDF - and if they did, maybe
    they are on a Mac and embedded Helvetica or soemthing.

    The problem here is that this client barely knows how he created the PDF in
    the first place. He can't even explain it to me; I have no idea if he
    printed to PDF or saved as or exported; no idea. When I asked him to
    recreate the PDF with fonts embedded and explained how to do so, he sent me
    a file saying "I created this new pdf and selected the option to embed
    thumbnails. I hope that helped." Ugh.

    I'm getting frustrated because I know that if Acrobat can open this file and
    display it correctly there HAS to be some way to export it correctly...

    Have you tried taking your pdf file and printing it to another pdf
    driver, such as pdf995 or PDFCreator? I think one or the other has the
    option of converting the fonts.

    To do that you have to open a new Illustrator doent. Place the the pdf. Select the menu Object / Flatten transparency. Make sure to check the Convert all text to outlines option and go. You got the whole pdf in curves.
