That's a good workaround. I'm about to do it.
However, I think the text outlining thing should do the same thing. I
think the outline is being applied on the inside of the character
outline, instead of the outside.
It seems to me that I once used a program that allowed setting the
outline on the inside or outside. InDesign? CorelDRAW? Illustrator?
I wonder if I just have to set something somewhere to make Scribus
apply the outline to the outside. If the outline feature is fixed to
apply it only to the inside, then perhaps I need to make a feature
request. I can see needing it on the outside quite often; I can't think
of any situation where I'd want the outline on the inside.
First, I need to determine if this is a PEBKAC* problem or not.
