Convert PDF text to outlines with MBS Plugin

A long term project came to delivery just before Christmas 2020: 

DynaPDF got a new feature to convert texts to outlines. And it's just a new flag for the Optimize function: ConvTextToOutlines.

The benefit of this conversion is that you can send the PDF to a printer shop and be sure that it will look exactly as you need. No font trouble, no missing fonts and no font rendering issues.

Please note that the process is not reversible. Once the text is converted, the text is gone. Just the look of the text stays, so you need OCR to convert it back to text. Copy & Paste is not possible for outlines, but for some uses this may be desired.

To show you what outlines means, we made this picture:

Based on our GlyphOutline example, we made a variations, which would change color for each line in drawing a character. This way you see the individual segments.

Please contact us if you have questions about DynaPDF, especially when using it with FileMaker projects. This feature is available free of charge for all customers with a DynaPDF Pro license valid at least till 23rd December 2020 to include version 4.0.45.128. For MBS plugins, we included it in pr4 and will ship final plugins in January.
