I am placing a text object in a place where the background is sometimes
dark and sometimes light, so the text is hard to see. Adding a
background to the text object itself looks a bit ugly, so I am wondering
if there is a way to add a shadow to the text itself.
What's the best way to do this?
I thought about redrawing the same text just offset by a fraction of the
text size, but I can't quite figure out how to do the placement
properly. My rough idea is the get the position of the text in pixel
coordinates, add an offset to it and then position it with display
coordinates as well. But how do I get the display coordinates of
something that I placed in axes coordinates? And how to I determine how
many pixels I need to offset without knowing the dpi?
