I am trying to add the usual opaque box to .ass and .ssa files.
I have the same problem on both.
If i try to set the Borderstyle to 3, this is what happens

As you can see, it looks like two different boxes overlaying on each other (you see the darker part where the two line cross each other).
If I change the Borderstyle to 4 (as often suggested to make the box look as one), here is what happens:

In this case the box looks good, but the writing suddenly changes showing an ugly shadow.
It's days I'm trying to fix this.
How can I add the usual translucent box we see on many professional subs correctly?
I created the subs on Aegisub (on a Mac).
Thanks to everyone.

If your player doesn't "correctly" handle borderstyle 4 it needs to be fixed in the player or upstream at libass (depending on where the bug is). If you cannot rely on that you have to manually draw boxes.
Thanks for your help.
Actually I tried one player only, because my main purpose is to create subs that can be burned into the video with the grey translucent box as well, which is not possible with SRT subs.
Using a Mac doesn't help either (can't find a software to burn in ASS and SSA subs).
I mean report it to the libass developers. When they fix something in libass the fix goes "downstream" to other software that are using libass. Like possibly your player or encoding software like HandBrake.
