Where is text shadow control in Snagit 13?

When you use the text tool in Snagit, several formatting options (font style, size, color, alignment) are displayed on a pop-up toolbar. But there's nothing about shadow. And there's nothing about text shadow in the help file. And there appears to be no way to change any of the shadow characteristics. I'm sure it's there somewhere, but it's not clear why I should have to spend 15 minutes looking for it and then write a tech support request for something that should be brain-dead easy to find/see/use. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are using the Text tool, look at the properties.

Thanks very much, Rick. I guess this is just one of those hundreds of things about Snagit that one is supposed to intuit with no help or indications or clues. I did check view, effects, image, edit, more, right click and others, but somehow missed properties. Boy how could I be so stupid, huh? Thanks again.

No worries - Can't tell you the number of times similar things have happened to myself. Fortunately we are all able to help one another out!

I usually call this one of those: I can't see the darn forest for all those silly trees in the way! Issues.

Cheers... Rick :)

As a guy who makes a living writing help files and doing everything possible to simplify OR AT LEAST EXPLAIN complex software, I call it a "crappy documentation" issue. But yours sounds so much nicer....!

Thanks again.
