Welcome to the forums.
Have you tried lowering the Intensity a little bit (see attached image)?
If that doesn’t do what you want then you might need to explain a bit more about what you are trying to achieve (maybe with a visual example).

See this thread

 


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

The same settings in Adobe Photoshop CC look like this.

You can get this effect using Outline on a second letter ‘A’ coloured black and sat below and offset from the white ‘A’ You can adjust the Alignment to get different effects but ultimately this is the way to get what you want.

Maybe if we could have an “Offset/Angle” setting for the Outline Effect that might be a solution.
Or maybe that’s a silly idea, I’ve not put too much thought into how it would work in practice.

Problem with the outer shadow is that if apply Radius the shadow is not antialiased anymore. I consider this a bug.

I think the outer shadow should work better than it does at full intensity and I would expect it to be cleaner but PS is struggling too. I think the design of outer/drop shadow presumes it will be used at considerably less than100% for most of it’s uses.

You can also use a stroke on the second object, this gives the added benefit of being able to have mitre joins, bevel joins or round joins.

Mitre joins

Bevel joins
