Hi community,

 

I am trying to have a two lined text with stroke, it must be localizable, but i am having some difficulties on getting the stroke of the two lines to merge in between properly. I have some restrictions, all text should be dynamic and to achive this effect i cannot rasterize them.

 

Could you help me please?

 

Thanks in advance

I can't offer you a quick solution in Photoshop - but it is possible in Illustrator.

By @c.pfaffenbichler

 

Of course that is the case (in Illustrator).

Normal text

with Pathfinder Effect

The text is live and can still be edited

The effect follows the change

Or change the "outline" (I have switched off the effect for demonstration purposes)

When the effect is switched on, these gaps also disappear

I would consider the Illustrator-approach a »Correct Answer« but I am loathe to mark it as such because it is not clear whether using Illustrator is an option for the original poster. 

@Gimena379730598ove , is it?

Rasterizing does not seem sensible, vectorizing would be an option, though. 

But the ensuing Shape Layer would naturally not be live text anymore.

Done in Photoshop using a Stroke, Outer Glow and a Layer Mask to trim the Outer Glow.

 

The same can be done by using a Shape Burst Gradient Stroke.

 

The biggest issue in Photoshop is the outer edges are not as smooth as one would like.

Hi Jeff,


No.
I think the biggest problem in Photoshop is that the layer mask for cropping does not automatically adapt to text changes and therefore has to be recreated every time the text is changed.

Anyone can do that.
But now reduce the width of the purple area and have the resulting white gaps in and between the letters automatically filled in purple.

 

Only then would you have a way that works in Photoshop.

You can't do this in one text layer. You need an additional layer.
