CREATE OUTLINES - Is it safe to do? - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi, Recently I have discovered the create outlines feature which makes the fonts vector objects and I was wondering if there are any disadvantages or problems you can get from using this function aside from the obvious one that you loose the ability to edit the text as type. I am intersted mostly in the quality/sharpness/crispness of the text once it is printed. Is it exactly the same quality if you had retained the type without making it vector outlines? I mean will it look just as sharp in the end as normal text? Thanks in advance for your comments....

    Default CREATE OUTLINES - Is it safe to do?

    Hi,

    Recently I have discovered the create outlines feature which makes the
    fonts vector objects and I was wondering if there are any disadvantages
    or problems you can get from using this function aside from the obvious
    one that you loose the ability to edit the text as type. I am intersted
    mostly in the quality/sharpness/crispness of the text once it is
    printed. Is it exactly the same quality if you had retained the type
    without making it vector outlines?

    I mean will it look just as sharp in the end as normal text?

    Thanks in advance for your comments.

    I have found that the quality of the text once creating outlines is the
    same, although I do not know why you would need to do it.

    The advantage of creating outlines, as I have seen it, is creating
    knockouts to lay behind your text. If you want a piece of text to be
    clearer, you can copy a piece of text, paste behind it, and then treat
    it as a line. That way you can bump up your line weight, and create a
    nice outline effect that perfectly follows your text. Another advantage
    is that you can round the corners, making the font more bubbly, which
    is also useful in knockouts.
