Is there a way in Quark 6.5 on a Mac to convert fonts to outlines? Thanks.

Text to box, but you don't want to do that.

You don't want to do that if the type you are using is thin. Thicker fonts tend to be better. But, Text to Box is nowhere near as good as what Illustrator has.

Incidentally, if you need to do this to large amounts of copy, you might want to try Gluon's XT called Outlines XT. It's free and it will work on multiple lines of copy.
