For 1.4.3 go to styles editor and to the character style tab (I think
you are there is you see the outline grayed out).

Now find the row of options-buttons and click the "O" (tooltip says
outline) so that is looks activated.

The row looks like U W X X K K O O S and you want the second from the right.

Once you activated outline, you can define your outline. Not sure that
this is an obvious step.  :)

And: The same principle applies in the "properties" window (we call it
the F2 window). So while people are still tweaking things, they can
experiment there and have a "live preview". And then go to style editor
to configure a style for keeps.

Scribus is great, like a treasure hunt. So many goodies, always an
adventure to find them, or even to discover an unexpected one.

Happy outlining,
