I believe you could use CSS for construct text objects.

Perhaps effects could do something with this as well. Or you could just do the text in your image editor and import it into construct as sprite.

Hi,

I've posted this necessary suggestion
to the "Construct 2" suggestions forum page here:

http://www.scirra.com/forum/topic63318.html

I truly believe that outline text object with color is a necessary option.
If you agree with me then visit the post above and post a reply in support.

Thanks for your help and continued support!

You have a number of options.

Firstly, the logo text you've shown is warped. I'm assuming you don't mean that, but the text underneath.

To apply advanced text effects such as outline etc. you can use the Spritefont plugin. I would however recommend working with the default type where possible - moving from outlines to drop shadows is easier to create and creates the same visual distinction that I assume you're after.

Personally I tend to use an art program to create advances looking text. Makes life easier.

Thanks for the link to Spritefont plugin. I was thinking about this the other day.
