yed 3.12.2 : Is font outlining possible?

0 votes

I want to have nodes with multiple colours, yet still have the same font in each, so I don't have to install specific fonts on each colour. To do this usually one uses font outlining. This URL discusses it:


Is it possible to do this in yEd? At the moment the y:NodeLabel tag has hasLineColor and hasBackgroundColor boolean attributes. Would these help in getting an outline, i.e. black outline on a white font? Or will a new Open Font be required to be imported?

Unfortunately, yEd does not support font outlining. Installing an outline font is your best bet to get this feature.
