 Hi,

Question 1: After i have converted the text into curve and had save it. Is it possible for me to undo the curve in the future when i want to edit the file?

Question 2: If a pdf file's text has already converted into curve, is there any way to convert it back to the original text without curve?

Thanks.

No.

If you want the original text remains editable, then you should save two separate copy - one with the original text, one with the curved text.

...which strongly suggests layers (the not in use layer of the text being not visible and not printable.)

(simply select all text (edit - select) and copy to two new layers. For one layer convert to curves, for the other leave as text. Turn the "eye" and "printer" off for the layer you don't want to use on for the layer you do do want to use.)

However, remember that both export to EPS and Publish to PDF can do convert all text to curves on the fly, so if either of those can be used, there is no need to convert the DRAWING to curves--simply convert only the output.
