I'd like to be able to fine-tune dropshadows in the Camtasia Studio text callouts. Example: I'd like white shadow for black text, or white text with a 1 px outline and a blue-gray shadow, etc. Near as I can tell the only option for dropshadows is a one size fits all. Much better than nothing, but would like greater control.

With CS 8, drop shadows on callouts (and any other visual media) are customizable via the new Visual Properties tab. Here's a quick example:

I want you to add this to mac also

Drop shadow or in photoshop it's called glow effect with no blur
so you are seeing black outline for the text
photoshop layer effect has one more control in their drop shadow; camtasia's drop shadow feature doesn't quite let me do this.

and caption feature doesn't do this either

more text formatting option will help tremendously thanks.
