Here's the situation. I do the marketing for an appliance retailer. We are integrating our price tags into the entire company system. Unfortunately the program is CRAP! Our current tags have a drop shadow, we build them manually in Corel. Once we move to the program we cannot add the drop shadow. I posted on this forum about embedded drop shadows a few months ago. There were some pretty decent fonts. I didn't mind retial script personally. However, not having layers you can't have a red face and a black shadow. My boss then asks me to create a font for him that does..beacause I'm apparantly Super Man! Not that easy I tell him. Then pay someone he tells me. So, again I tell him that to my knowledge it isn't that easy because when you create the font it is still just one single layer. You can't have multi-layer fonts. But then again...I am by no means an expert. So...can you create a font with a red type face and a black drop shadow? I don't think so because again it is the design software that allows the attributes to be changes, such as drop shadow, colour, etc. Can it be done or am I right on this one?
