I'm not sure which outline plugin you're using.  There are several in my plugin pack, I'll describe those.

 

When using the Effects > Object > Outline plugin, the pixels you want to outline must be on a transparent canvas, like this:

 

OutlineObject.png

 

An "object" is a group of pixels on a layer that is completely surrounded by transparent pixels (or the edge(s) of the canvas).

 

So, if you're trying to outline text (or "stroke text") you'll want to type that text on a transparent layer first, then run the outline plugin.

 

(BTW, if you're using Pyrochild's outline plugin, it also works like this.)

 

 

When using the Effects > Selection > Outline plugin, the outline is drawn following the selection, like this:

 

OutlineSelection.png

 

This second one does not require transparency to work since it follows the "marching ants" of your selection.
