4.14 Font outline unaffected by opacity
When I add a widget animation that changes the opacity of a textbox the font outline is unaffected.
Steps to reproduce:
Expected result: The opacity of the outline should be changed as well as the text.
After running a few tests it appears that this is working as intended. The font and the outline have two separate color settings that can be set independently. If you would like to fade out the outline along with the text you will need to set up an animation for the outline as well (setting keys directly for this is not currently supported). I have written up a request to add the ability to key colors for the outline color on the animation time line. I have provided a link to the public tracker. Please feel free to use the link provided for future updates.
You could expose a float variable to cinematics and use this float to drive the opacity setting for the color value for your outline. Exposing the variable to cinematics will allow you to key the float on the animation timeline.
Make it a great day

Instead of animating the text opacity and using a workaround to animate the text outline opacity, I just animate the render opacity of the text box. For my purposes at least this gives the same apparent result (unless you want the fill and the outline to animate in a different way of course).
