Shape blocks drop shadow not showing.

Go to solution Solved by carbonix,

Hi Everyone,

I need some help in understanding why the Shape blocks in the fluid engine don't display the drop shadow after exiting Edit mode.

In the two sets of screenshots below, in edit mode, the drop shadow on a rectangular shape shows correctly. Upon saving and exiting edit mode, the drop shadow disappears - or more so a hairline of it is visible around the rounded corners of a rectangle shape. All settings are via the SQSP settings for the shape and there is no custom CSS. 

Changing the stretch setting for the shape somewhat remediates the shadow issue but not completely. Is anyone else having the same issue by replicating it (simple shape block with SQSP drop-shadow setting set to on), and any thoughts on how to fix?

thanks in advance.

The site animation with the Clip setting to On, removes the shadow. It works with the other animation options. SQSP needs to test and document these somewhere that is easy to access. Should not be time consuming discovery process by makers and end-users for something that is an OOB feature option.

FYI to anyone planning to use OOB animation on their site.
