I am new to illustrator. I want to be able to outline a text with the same font, only larger. I want to be able to see both fonts. When I do this with the transformation is does not outline, it only squeezes the letters, so it is not uniform around the entire letter. Thank you in advance for you answers, and please excuse my novice knowledge if this is an easy problem.
is this really a scripting question? Or should the question better moved to the main forum?
If it is so, you have more possibilities. You don't need a duplicate of the „font“. Use
a) a stroke for that - or
b) a second fill in the appearence palette (under the first one) with the effect offset path
