When I use italics in a Title object the edge of the last letter is cut off
The last letter in an italic word may slope out of the text's bounding box. This may happen for non-italic text too if the font is unusally extended to the right (the Blackadder font's 'd' for instance).
Sizing the bounding box will not correct this since that scales the text at the same time.
The simple workaround is to add a space character to the end of the word.
