In prior versions, text outline operated differently. We would use it to make sure text stood out regardless of variations in a given background. For example, if the background has a white section, then white letters would be impossible to read. But with a black outline to give contrast, all was well. That has changed with version 7. Currently, the text outline option is applied inside the letters, so an outline of a certain size completely fills in the letter to the point where the original color can't be seen. Even a small outline can make the text difficult to read. As it is, it's virtually unusable for what I need. Outline should be applied behind the letter, similar to a text shadow.
