Inkscape text outlines

1. Create the letters you want and get thing tuned as positioned as desired. This might be just plain text, text with some manual kerning applied, or outlines one draws or modifies.
2. Group them, apply a stroke, and set the desired thickness. Depending on the size of your text, you’ll need different thicknesses. (If you look closely, especially at the hole in the ‘A’, you can see how this version is thicker than the original) undefined undefined
3. Duplicate the text and set the fill white and turn off the stroke. This is the part where it varies a bit from Illustrator. In Inkscape, all you need to do is “Duplicate” the grouped paths/object using Ctrl-D (That will combine the separate copy and then paste-in-front that were called for in the Illustrator tutorial).
