Question [Q] Is Shadow alpha linked with Text Alpha?

Hi to all! I'm a beginner in Zooper widget, and I have a simple question: If I set a text with a semi-transparent color (with alpha) and then I set the shadow with a solid color (without alpha), the shadow is still rendered faded. It looks like it ignores the alpha in shadow and uses the text one. Is this a bug or a desired behavior?

I dont think this is a bug. The shadow is a part of the text, and so is the shadow alpha. At least that's how I look at it

It makes sense, but it can be limiting. I would like to make an effect like the jpg in attachment.
