Outline Stroke not working
I select an object, then navigate to Object > Path > Outline Stroke and nothing happens. GRRRR.

Object > Flatten Transparancy & Pathfinder > Unite
I applied "expand appearance" and then I could outline the stroke.
Same here I cant outline the path of a compound path
On windows - Right-click on the shape / text ---> Create Outlines. Only way I could get it to work for me.
hi guys its me krypton
i figure out why the outline object not effect the text.
go to Edit > preference > use preview bounds ( mark it )
then the outline object will work on the text to have perfect alignment without text box around.
wish you the best
Joe Afflerbach's comment sorted it for me:
"I have had this issue for a while. Trying to outline stroke using Effect/Path/Outline Stroke does NOT work.
However, Object/Path/Outline Stroke does work:-)"
Same here. I'm using Ai 2020, trying to outline text some words but it just disappear right after. Only happens on certain fonts tho. Anyone knows why this is happening and how to fix it?

Don't know if this Thread is still alive.
Are there any other settings or obvious reasons why Outline Stroke might not work?
My thing is a snowflake. Tried stroking as a united compound shape:
"Select the objects, click unite in the pathfinding tools > make compound shape then apply stroke > outline stroke."
Tried breaking it all the objects down and putting them into one layer too... still didn't work. Please help.
I figured it out, do not highlight text when outlining it
Can't outline stroke ???????????

Figured out the outline stroke issue. Must be ungrouped and then all compound paths that correspond with the artwork's stroke you want to outline must be released before performing this action.
object path outline not working for me
choosing the stroke panel, align stroke to outside nor align stroke inside are not working / won't allow them to be chosen/clicked.

Ahah! had the same issue. Make the path/shape a compound, expand that. Then Outline Stroke worked for me.
If you do this in order outline stroke should work...
Select the objects, click unite in the pathfinding tools > make compound shape then apply stroke > outline stroke.

Same thing happened to me today. I think it has something to do with compound path, but still looking for an answer
