STROKING after using the GROW command
After GROWing a letter in a word by one or more pixels, I tried to STROKE the action and it didn't seem to work properly. I would like the letter to be totally filled with its solid color... but instead, it just seemed to outline the letter, leaving white space between the new GROW line and the actual letter.

Can anyone tell me how to end up with a "fatter" letter that's completely filled?

Any help will be very much appreciated. Smile

After growing the selection, Bucket Fill the selection with the same color, making sure the 'Fill whole selection' option is on.

RE: STROKING after using the GROW command
Here's another way
==If its just one letter==

copy the letter onto a new layer using the Rectselect with space around it.

Layer > Layer to image size

Then select the background Fuzzyselect with fuzzy select and invert to select the letter

Select > Invert

Grow the selection
Select > Grow

Make one more new layer (transparent)

Bucketfill bucket fill the selection.

= Selecting all the letters=
Fuzzyselect fuzzy select the background
invert selection
Select > Invert
Grow
Select > Grow

Make a new transparent layer

Bucketfill Bucket fill selection/s
*If there are spaces between the letters, you'll need to click the bucket fill for those letters.

Do not overlook the obvious.

The text tool will adjust individual letters.

This example,
The text is entered globally with a size of 23.
An individual letter is selected and the size increased to 27 using the on-canvas dialog.

edit: another example where character size, baseline also font, changed for the selection.
