In case you missed it way back in Daily Build 502, you can now add bitmap masks to text objects!
Previously, when you tried to add a bitmap mask to text objects, you’d get unexpected behavior—most often in the form of your text always showing up as black. Now, you can add masks to text objects directly, or to a group where a text object resides and everything should work as expected!
Remember, only subscribers can take advantage of the latest and greatest being pushed through the Corona SDK Daily Builds. 😉
