Summary0015533: RFE: Allow control of the shadow color and outline color for text when using those features during styling
DescriptionCurrently there is no option to change the color of the shadowed text or the outline of the text.

This can be implemented as a 3rd option on long press.

This will allow the typesetter to have fun and be more creative without the added effort of having to fake it by other means.

The shadowed text option already takes away a lot of the tediousness in having to manually produce that effect with 2 text layers.

Why not allow a color change. Unless there is some technical reason it is not possible.

E.g. For light orange text I may want a darker orange shadow.
Steps To ReproduceCreate some text apply a shadow/outline - it's always black. The color panel at the bottom does not offer any option to control this.

I feel the color drop down should be part of the outline/shadowed text's advanced options e.g. offset etc and should not go in the main color list.
TagsNo tags attached.

That is incorrect. When you enable one of those effects in character style panel, the second color combo in color groupbox gets enabled. Change color here, done!
