I'm new  here and perhaps this is in the works or I just failed to find it, but I miss the ability to outline text in different colors and line sizes.

Yes. It has been requested a few times. Having the ability to add a stroke width and color would be nice. The workaround is not that great. I'm hoping it will be in PTE 10.N or 11.

Hi JJB45

This is not the solution, but I use this.

Here is another silly solution.  Each letter would need to be done separately for proper alignment.  Too much work to be useful.

Hi JJB45

To make this, you only need to change the scale of the whole text, not each letter

Hello MUR

This is what I meant by proper alignment, each color of the letter is centered on the on the previous color.  Otherwise, as I did above, the word becomes the center.  It would be worse in a caption with even three or four words.  I think what I did was change the scale of the whole text.  Is there some other method I am not seeing?  Your attachment will not open for me.  

PS: I opened your download.  Seems I can be computer illiterate at times.

Hi JJB45

I understand, PTE is still lacking text editing features.

Sometimes I use Photoshop PS2 (the free version, downloaded from Adobe}, en save it as PNG and open in PTE;

Keep the Photoshop file, just in case you need to make modifications, because in PTE it is a picture and no text file

I totally agree with this suggestion. And I would like 3D text too !
You might be interested in my experiment.

It's a workaround too but it gives good result :

Good ideas until we have a better option. I think the drop shadow method might work if we could adjust the curve to maybe a flat horizontal line to remove the fade.

Thanks,
Tom
