bullets disappear when you outline the text
bullets disappear when you outline the text. how is this a thing. fix this immediately.
Hello Adobe? This has been a costly issue for many designers during 2 decades. Are you listening ?
Just dumped 10,000 brochures in the bin. When will this be resolved??
This is a costly error!
Totally agree. Designers shouldn't have to worry about basic elements disappearing (without warning) when outlining fonts in InDesign. Bulleted and Numbered lists as well as strokes and fills applied to text boxes should outline or somehow be retained when outlining fonts.
Yeah, Anonymous commented · September 17, 2018 21:55 - what you say it's correct but, as we can use the bullets and numbering when editing the text paragraphs, we should be able to safely convert them to outlines.
The same issue with disappearing we have on text box. If we use a text box with some colour background for design reasons, when we convert text to outlines, the box disappears. Only the outlined text itself remains in place.
This has been a thing for at least 10 years. I'd recommend using a bullet glyph instead of the "Bullets and Numbering" option. It's much easier to do and not worry about remembering to convert bullets to text before you outline for PDF.

I am having the same problem. What is going on? It seems as if several things are not working correctly with the recent updates. Engineering needs to check into this ASAP.
