Re: Expand and create outline in illustratorNo difference. Expanding a text object creates outlines of the text.
It is not unheard of to have multiple methods of accomplishing the same thing.
Create Outlines only works on text objects. But Expand will work on many other objects (and create outlines at the same time). For example, text which has an Envelope Distort on it -- Create Outlines doesn't work, but Expand does. If you select a live text object, and an Envelope Distorted Text object at the same time, Create Outlines will only change the live text leaving the Envelope untouched. Expand alters both objects.
