Edit shadow text effects

Postby Scarlet-Noble » Mon Feb 04, 2019 7:42 pm

How do I edit the shadow I applied to text? Can I make it longer or farther away from the word?

AFAIK, the shadow can't be modified by the user. There are no settings on the Character dialog where I would expect them to be and the Help topic doesn't say anything about modifying the shadow effect.

I think the only way would be to do this by hand, setting the main line in the text colour, then a second line in the shadow colour, displaced to the side and below by the required offset.
