Is there anyway to create outline fonts with drop shadows in PSM? The inside of the font one color the outline another and then add a drop shadow.

Unfortunately, the Outline and Shadow styles aren't supported in PSM. If you just want to create a shadow, you could always mimic it by creating a text box with some grey or black text, and then put another, identical text box with another color on top of it, and shift it just a little bit to create the shadow effect. This will give you the shadow, but you still won't be able to use the Outline style.
