Soft-shadow text is a very useful option, and it would be great if Scribus could include it easily from within Scribus itself. 
Talk of transforming text elsewhere, manipulating paths, exporting as svg, etc, is far too techie for folk like me. Pathetic, I know, but I'm a writer/sub-editor, not a computer pro, and I need the features I use (or would like to use) to be available straightforwardly from the application's own facilities. 
Soft text shadow would be a very welcome addition.

The shadow is one of the features not exported to scribus.
But it helps anyway. I make two frames with the same text, the first as 
suggested transformed to path and export as svg -  works perfectly.  The 
second one (shadow) with blur (Unsch?rfe) and then export as bitmap.

If I export a text as bitmap with 300dpi I can still see the "stairs" in 
the text when zooming, can I be sure it won't be seen in printing?
