How to outline text

7247 Views, 2 Replies

I do not need a solid fill text, only a black outline. Is there an easy way to do this without going into MS Word (which I still don't fully understand). I have also tried using the TXTEXP command. This does the job, however, I am left with small lines that I need to clean up. This is pain because I will be needing to use outlined text for a variety of things. I would relly prefer a text style that is only an outline, is this possible?

I know this is an old thread, but for anyone wanting to get an outlined text - just use the Swis721 BdOul BT Bold font.
