I'm sure this newbie question has been answered before, but I can't seem to 
find the answer, so here it is again. Does anyone know where I can find a 
tutorial on how to put a border/outline around text that results in non-rounded 

Grow rounds the corners and I understand the reason why it does this, but the 
result I'm looking for is a crisp outline where a letters like A, E, F, T, W, 
V, Z, etc... in an Arial type font have hard corners in the outline, not 

For example, if I was to put an 8 pixel wide outline on the word TEXT that was 
in an Arial font it would have a an outline that is just 8 pixels on the flats 
of the character, but would extend the correct number of pixels to meet the 
adjacent edge's outline in the corners, creating a hard corner.

I hope this makes sense.  I found many tutorials on YouTube for the grow 
technique, but not this.  I even tried to do this in InkScape, but you end up 
with the same results, rounded corners in the outline.
