    Hi Akshay,

    We were able to confirm the issue that you see. The issue indeed does not happen with Illustrator 2018 (22.1).

    We identified hyphenation as the potential culprit. To workaround the issue, either disable hyphenation in the Paragraph panel or make sure text does not get hyphenated.

    We are sorry that you experience the issue and are working on fixing the issue.

    The Adobe Illustrator Team

    An update to my situation, it might help others.

    I tried to export using the same source file on different versions of Illustrator, (24, 23.1.1, 22.1, 20) but it didn't work, hyphenation turned on or off.

    I then decided to create a new identical file from scratch, and surprise... it worked! No matter the version of Illustrator, and even with Hyphenation turned on, the text was correctly exported to <text> and not paths.
    I should have tried this before I installed many versions of Ai, lesson learned!

    I've stupidly overwritten the original file so I cannot attach it here for review.

    Maybe the original file "remembered" that it wasn't supposed to work and somehow got corrupted.

    A piece of the puzzle anyway!

    Thanks Akshay for your concern, I'll see how it goes from here on!

    Hello there. I also have this issue, but using Illustrator 2018 (22.1)

    I had hopes the workaround you provided would fix it, but it didn't.

    What's the status on this?

    Thanks

    Same issue for me, fixed by quitting Chrome. But, well...
