Adding shadow to RM text

iosman123 » June 26th, 2019, 3:49 am

My wallpaper changes every minute and since some are light and some are dark I don't want to have to change my RM accordingly. So, how can i edit the white texted version of my skin with a shadow so that it will show up on light and dark backgrounds?

For shadows on text you have two possibilities:
  1. https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual-beta/meters/string/#StringEffect
  2. https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual-beta/meters/string/inline/#InlineShadow
Edit: and there's the "Chameleon"-plugin, that, beside other things, can read colors from the current wallpaper. Worth looking at it!
