I'm trying to figure out how I can mask a text layer with another text layer. essentially, I want it to look like the text layer on the bottom is cut around the text layer on top to give it some white space around the stroke.
Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, that won't work because I'm also using a drop shadow so the border sticks out around the entire text and not just the top. So having a true mask is what I'm looking for.
Hi @seanwinningham what you are asking for is not possible with a mask applied to the bottom text layer based on the upper text (with stroke/shadow). Layer masks are not dynamic so editing the top text would break the mask on the bottom text.
If you create an intermediate layer between the two, you could stroke that white to block out the bottom text, and then add a layer mask to that middle layer so only the top shows. That would allow you to edit text on both top and middle layer to match.
