When I set a border for text, it is being drawn in front of fill. I want to be able to make the border render under the fill, so that it does not obstruct the fill. I am also unable to switch how border renders (out, middle, in).

 

This was present in ~v41 and is still present in v54.1. I am stunned that it has not been discovered yet...

How much text do you need this on? You can do a few different things - have a duplicate text layer below this one, which has the border, so it renders behind. You can also outline the text (Convert to path Ctrl + B), in which case you can tell it whether to render on the outside, inside or center.

 

As far as I know, in Illustrator for example you also can't change where the stroke / border is rendered on text layers - it can only be centered on the character outline. I think you can do it in Fi

I think you can do it in Figma, but it glitches on some letters and the result doesn't look great, so it's not just an Xd limitation - it has something to do with how fonts are dynamically rendered. Once you turn them into static vector paths, then there's no problem changing the way the border renders.
