I have a map with labels having different letter spacing depending on attribute information. When I export this to PDF it looks OK, not right, but OK. The problem is that all text converts to outlines and cannot be changed in Illustrator (also there are no layer groups when exporting to PDF). When exporting to SVG the letter spacing disappears completely.

My request is that the SVG export also exports the letter spacing. Or perhaps a better PDF export that doesn't transform all text to outlines.
