There is a bug with the UI, when naming your layers if you type too many underscores in the name of the layer the drop shadow on the font starts to move away from the text.
For example if you type D_D_D_D_D_D_D_D_D_D as a layer name you will see the dark shadowing on the text not be in the correct position.

Which OS/version are you seeing this on? If on Windows, do you have any UI scaling turned on?

Hmm. We're not able to reproduce off-hand. I suspect this issue is fixed in the update that will go out in the near future.
