rotated text blocks trigger these memory redraw messages.

instead of the path level. There's no need to ungroup before applying a
stroke. Select the text-converted-to outlines, then Subselect until you see
the fill showing in object inspector. Apply stroke via the object inspector.
Set up a keyboard shortcut for Subselect. You'll be needing it constantly to
drill down to path level in FHMXa.
