Text Outlines

A text area or text-path can be rendered as an outline by selecting it and then using the Edit->Text->Outline menu item. For example, Figure 8.14(a) shows a standard text area and Figure 8.14(b) shows that text area rendered as an outline. If the outline mode is set, you can apply a fill colour using Edit->Fill Colour.

Note that although text-paths can be rendered with an outline in FlowframTk, the LaTeX export functions can't emulate this and will either export the text-path without the outline setting or will export it as a path (in which case the alternative text will be ignored) depending on your TeX Configuration Setting.
