DescriptionEnvironment: Linux Mint 16 "Petra"
Version: Scribus 1.5.0 (
Language: HU

Font type: IMPACT Regular

As it can be seen in the video, Scribus fails to correctly display the above font type when the outline width is 10% and above.
The same font type with outlines is displayed properly in Inkspace.

Peter, can you make an example SLA and bundle the impact font in to it via 'Collect for Output' to make it easier for the devs to troubleshoot? Thanks!
