Description Dão Gottwald [:dao] 2012-06-15 06:34:53 PDT
Created attachment 633496 [details] [diff] [review]

A shadow can't be white and the text doesn't look like it's inset either... It makes more sense for the white "shadow" to be above the text as a highlight.

Is there a specific reason for the horizontal offset? Using just a vertical offset would be more consistent with our other highlight/shadow effects and seems to have about the same effect on legibility.

[Approval Request Comment]
Not a regression fix but risk-free UI polish. Just changing the vertical and horizontal offset parameters of the text shadow.

[Triage Comment]
No expected fallout from this polish and still early in the cycle, approved for Aurora 15.
