Whenever I add a drop shadow effect with an offset of at least 1 to any font in my game , the result is that the font image is being cut up incorrectly. The drop shadow is getting cut off and the part getting cut off appears at the edge of another letter. Using build 9001.

Thanks. :)

Fixed in b9325, but as a result the letters will be spaced farther apart when drawn.

...the letters will be spaced farther apart when drawn.
To solve this unaesthetic problem, I always use this block of the Drawing Utilities extension with a negative number:
I think it would be good to have it in the default Stencyl Palette as it provides great flexibility and significantly improves the look of all texts:
