Outline On Screen Text For Better Legibility?

Post by letmein »

Hi, I have an on screen display for my current playing artist and song. I have it set to be always on top so I can see it while applications are maximized. There is just one problem: the text is white so when the maximize application has a white background it can't be read. How can I have the text outlined in black so it can still be read?

You can add either of the following keys to any String meter:

Code: Select all

StringEffect=BORDER
StringEffect=SHADOW
More.
