3D Effect / Shadow linked to text

Recommended Posts

Please enjoy a short video about text-linked 3D Effect or shadows.


- tl;dr: use symbols

- for adjustments on shadow-copies disable sync and use layer effects only, then re-enable sync when you're finished

- manipulation of fill/stroke properties while sync is disabled will break the link of the text content, i.e. if you change the text later the shadow won't update anymore

- transformations applied to the symbol affect only the selected instance

- transformations applied to the text inside the symbol while sync is enabled will also apply to other instances, i.e. if you stretch/rotate/... the original, the shadow will follow. However, I managed to break this particular link somehow while experimenting, not sure what the exact conditions are.
