White outlines around text to make it more readable


I would like a way to put a white outline around text, the same way as on movie subtitles. It would be a thick white shadow, making the black text readable on any background, including black.

There is a workaround which require a lot of work described here:
Basically, it requireds stacking 20 copies of the same text in bold and white with white shadow on top of each other, and adding the black text on the very top. Then the white shadow is thick enough.

I can’t use that, it’s just not sustainable with multiple text labels.

I would like to check if I missed any new feature that could help with that. A way to make the shadow thicker for example…

If not, I’ll try to put in a feature request.
