Why double text outline? Example: Letter O has another O inside it.

Postby Fran3 » Tue Nov 06, 2018 10:26 am

I have inadvertently done something.

Now when I click the text tool and type each letter has two outlines... the outer and the inner.

For Example the letter "O" has another "O" inside it.

I can use the Object Properties "Fill" to fix this but then the letter is thick.

I'm using the Ariel font but same problem in any font.

I just want plain text. How do I fix this?

Thanks for any help.

Hi.

Set the right stroke and fill attributes (Shift+Ctrl+F).
My guess is you have a semi-transparent stroke and you need to move the alpha slider back to 255.

Additionally, remove the stroke by clicking on the X icon in the Stroke Paint tab of the fill and stroke dialog. That's going to remove it entirely, if you don't want it.
