Could someone perhaps confirm or refute my hypothesis that the 'thickening-up of text' issue only occurs if the 'Qt5 Svg devel' package is not installed prior to building? (Cf. 4lex4's note: 'For Linux users: install Qt5 Svg devel package before building this version' - https://github.com/4lex4/scantailor-advanced/releases). I could not find this package in the Macports repositories.

Having just updated Qt5 to version 5.13.2, reinstalled the early access STA version, and run some tests I think I can now answer my question myself: it's quite likely that an outdated Qt5 version caused those weird rendering issues when I installed the early access version a few months ago. All seems to be working fine now. Shall post again in case this impression turns out to be wrong.
