Camtasia - Text with borders

Hi Team,

I use both Snag-It and Camtasia. I find myself looking for a borders on my text in Camtasia and it's not there.

I want it because the background image sometimes has many colors and it's difficult at times finding something that pops enough to my liking.

Allowing a border slider and color just like in Camtasia would benefit me.
Thanks for listening.

for a workaround, create your text in Snagit like described in this tutorial ...

This approach isn't as readable as your image, nor as readable as Kayakman's snagit work around, but it might be good enough for some scenarios and could save a bit of work

You can take advantage of the "Drop Shadow" effect.

Set align to center, and offset to zero, then set the blur and opacity up and you'll get an effect similar to what you see below with the ABC text.

Again, it's not perfect, but it can be done without leaving Camtasia.
