How to make drop shadow on gradient text?
Somewhat familiar with flash. Making a Flash header. Tried creating (thin, fine) text in both Illustrator & Photoshop and bringing into flash, but of course I lose resolution and text is choppy, so duh, why not just create my text in Flash. So I made some text, broke apart twice and made some nice "gradient" text. I now want to know how to give it a drop shadow. NOT WORKING.
If I select it and click on "filter" in the properties panel, I do not get a "+" sign to add a filter. Says that filters can only be applied to text, movie clips & buttons (of course this is no longer text). Even if I convert it to a symbol it does not give me a "+" sign. Help! Any ideas would be appreciated.
