I'm using fonts as a track matte and trying to apply a stroke and I can't get it won't work. I've tried all I can think of and spent WAY too much time already on line. Can anyone help? It should be easy!

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

 

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post if it helps you get responses.

To get a stroke without a mask or shape layer path, you can go to the menu and choose Layer/Layer Styles/Stroke. There are not as many options, but when you rely on a Track Matte, that is the simplest solution.

Duplicating the text layer would also be an easy solution here.
