Hi,

How can I create a shadow around a letter? Drop obviously dont work because it cast shadows on only one side.

Thanks,
Stig

Set drop shadow distance to zero. Play with the softness & opacity. Use multiple instances of drop shadow if necessary.

Thank you!
It could be done by using the full options on the text editing toolbar.

Correct -- you can add a stroke using the character settings to create an outline. A shadow implies a bit of feathering or softness, which the stroke cannot do.
