    Hello! I've recently been in love with Super Mario Bros. Wonder and its UI, and have been wondering how to do some text stuff like they did. I have no idea where to start though, so two questions:
    Firstly, how do I make my outlines look less round and weird(?) if you get what I mean, and make them look more sharp? (Using TextMeshPro)
    Examples, Nintendo / Me:
    upload_2023-11-1_13-12-11.png upload_2023-11-1_13-13-15.png
    (Somewhat unrelated question, is there a way to apply the outline to sprites added using <sprite>?)

    And secondly, how do I create such a text bounce effect, where the letters each bounce individually?
    enter.gif main.gif

    These things could really enhance my game. I hope this was understandable (English isn't my first language), and that I'm not asking for too much. As I've said, I'm not really familiar with TextMeshPro effects and have no idea where to start.

    Thanks in advance!
