Stroke Position pop-up menu greyed-out, stuck on “Center”

Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

When trying to create outlines around the letters in a word, I used Format > Styles > Stroke, which worked — at first. But when I tried to set the positioning of the stroke so that it didn’t intrude on the interior of the letters themselves, the submenu was greyed-out and stuck on “Center”, which is not how I want it. Is there any way to get it to work so that I can select “Outside”, or do I have to wait until an update makes it work properly?

For now, the strokes of text layers can only be in the center position for technical reasons, but you can simply convert a text layer into a shape layer and you'll be able to change its stroke. To do that, choose Format > Convert into Shape. Hope that helps!

Is there any chance of this coming back in the future? It's the only thing that I was using that got lost in the move from Pixelmator to Pixelmator Pro?
