Font stroke

It would be great to have the option to add a stroke to the outside of a font edge, as opposed to just the center of the font edge. That is, when I increase the size of the stroke, I'd like it to expand only outward and not impinge upon the shape of the character, so I can get a good thick outline.

As it is now it yields an undesirable look when the stroke is more than just a few pixels. In the attached, the top line shows what happens in Stencyl with a 5px stroke on a 50px font; the lower line is a Photoshop mockup of the same sizes, but with the stroke restricted to the outside edge of the font.

In 3.1 you will be able to do this with Bitmap fonts. :)
