    Laura,

    From 10 as PDF, with fonts embedded (tick), without Preserving Illustrator Editing Capabilities (untick).

    Best way to send type (unless recipient needs to edit): Type>Create Outlines (Save a backup of editable text first).

    It's also best to convert text to outlines when trading AI files across Mac and PC platforms. The only way I would bother to keep the text intact is if all fonts used were in OpenType format.

    This is only practical when no further editing is required.

    My experience is different. Over countless cross-platform projects, I have had very minimal difficulties with Type 1 fonts as long as the identical fonts were installed on both platforms. Yes, I have had to deal with the occasional reflow, and ligatures can be a PITA. However, I have also run into OT fonts that are not "perfectly" cross-platform compatible.

    OT fonts certainly do have the advantage that, at least on paper, one does not need to buy platform-specific versions.

    I still do not see why PDF with embedded fonts is not the best way to send things over to proof; no worries about application/platform conformity.

    Besides, outlining has, or may have, real drawbacks, James Talmage, "Create Outlines Adds Width" #2, 30 May 2005 11:40 am </cgi-bin/webx?14.3bbaab84/1>

    I agree!
