Converting Text to path extremely slow
Converting Text to Path ist extremely slow. I have a Job, where 1000 textboxes (each a 5 digit number) has to be converted to paths. On my iMac (3,7 GHz 6-Core i5) this task takes 16 minutes. I tried the same with 16 years old Freehand MX on a 11 years old MacPro 2 x 2,8 GHz Quad Core and it took 13 SECONDS! As there was never an Intel-Version of Freehand it runs under Rosetta what lets the Result in Illustrator look even poorer... And as I have to repeat this task 100 times I would end up in 26,6 hours sitting in front of my Mac, waiting for Illustrator. I will convert the files and complete them on the old machine with Freehand, but this should not be the workflow...

Wow. Too long! Oliver, can you package the file with the fonts you are using (File > Package) and send it over to the firstname.lastname@example.org for the team to dissecting?
