  1. Really thanks man… With Ur help i just submitted my resume to an MNC…i was unable to do it n was tryn for an hour to make the shade..thanks from the heart bro

  2. I keep doing this and instead of it just shading the word, it shades the word and a substantial amount of space under the word too. I can't figure out how to fix this. Do you know how to fix my issue?

  3. How can I make the shading end at the word instead of going across the page like that? So that only the word "shading" is shaded not the entire line?
