Text effects

In the wix editor when you edit text you can set text effects like shadows. The editorX does not give you an option to set the shadow effect for text. Or is there a different way to set text shadows?

There is currently no support for text or block level element drop shadows in Editor X. I would also like this feature and you can find my feature request thread about it here.

Thanks Hank. This is a very basic functionality that shouldn't take more than 1/2 hour for them to implement and test. They already have it in the wix editor. So it is not like they have to spend hours figuring out how to do it. I am having a tough time deciding whether it is even worth redoing my website using editor X since some of these little things are not there yet. The only positive thing I see is the fluid layout and the breakpoint support.

Hey, I don't know what Wix's codebase or back end looks like so I can't comment on exactly how long features take to implement. All of the developers definitely understand how text-shadow functions in CSS but integrating that into their build system and front end probably isn't a half hour-task.

As for if you should redo your website in Editor X or not, I've recently almost finished doing a very large project in it and completely recreating my employer's site in Editor X. It has its quirks, bugs and many missing features but I am operating under the assumption that the "classic" Wix editor will eventually be depreciated in favour of Editor X at some point. Responsive design is the future (heck, it's been the present for a while now) and I certainly wouldn't recommend building a new website with Wix's regular editor at this time.
