If you want to output a pdf and automatically have the text turned to outlines, you can make yourself a new PDF Preset,
Adobe PDF Presets...>
then make a new preset, choose an initial format such as X-1a:2001, It work with only Acrobat 4
then under advanced tab, pick custom for transparency. and you can select to "convert all text to outlines"
set any other settings you'd usually want, and save it....
If it won't work, draw a line or a rectangle somewhere in the artboard and make it 0% opacity. Then will work
