Is there a way to make shadows on Director' text ?
I know I can import text with shadows and efects as an image from other programs, but sometimes it would be nice to have nicer options within Director. Is it possible ?

It's only possible on Field members. Syntax is: member(4).dropShadow = 3
This gives a totally black non transparent drop-shadow that is three pixels wide. Simple, but perhaps rather limited. No anti-aliased text with Field members.
Other options is to create a copy of the Text-sprite underneath, and shuffle that a bit. Use a dark gray for colour, make it semi transparent etc. Pretty easy to create a behavior for doing this automatically.
