To add an outline to your text, you will first need to add a text box to your page. If you are not familiar with how to do this please read All about Text.
Select the box containing the text that you want to add an outline to and click Effects. Check the box next to Outline.
NOTE: Outline will only work with text that is 15 pt. or larger!
Click the color swatch to open the color picker and choose the color of your outline there.
Use the plus (+) or minus (-) to increase or decrease the size of the outline, or just type a value.
The outline will be added to the text on your page in real time. Any changes made to the outline will show immediately on your page.
There are a couple rules you should be aware of:
- There is a direct correlation between point size of text and the allowed size or thickness of the outline:
Why? We limited outline size to a size that reproduces well and with the expected result!
- An outline cannot be added to select font styles:
Why? We limited outline to only fonts that reproduce well with an outline enabled!
- If a single text box contains varying font styles or sizes, outline will be disabled on all fonts within the text box.
