The ability to convert outline text into live text will be available through the 'Retype' feature we recently shipped. The released version can identify fonts for now. Soon it will allow you to edit it as well. More details: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/illustrator/using/retype.html

If Adobe Acrobat Reader Pro has the ability to convert outlined text to editable text, why doesn't Illustrator have this feature built into it's system for Designers alreeady? Can this please be done? Instead of forcing users to use multiple programs that can chew up RAM and CPU memory (for those working on large/multiple files), it would increase efficiency and productivity if that process was bypassed by simply adding the same feature used in Acrobat Reader Pro into Illustrator.
It's just a waste of my time, and tedious when I'm under time pressure to reach my stakeholder's deadlines, and I have to explain to non-Designers why I need more time to extract their content so I can edit a single word from the original outlined files, to paste back into the Illustrator file, and adjust the layout.Sofia supported this idea ·
