Effects not work very well in rectangle with corner radius

Hi,

effects “drop shadow” seems not work well in rectangle that has corner radius, does anyone has the same issue or know how to solve it?

barely can see “drop shadow” in bottom left and top right corner radius


Can you show the shadow settings? This looks normal to me if you have one shadow set to to x +5 and y +5 and another one to x -5 and y -5 or something similar.

Yes, I have shadow set to x+4, y+4, and another one to x-4, y-4.

Then, I set(x+4,y+4), (x+4, y-4), (x-4, y+4), (x-4, y-4). But that will make sides of the rectangle have shadow+8 (4+4), and corner radius have shadow +4.

And what effect are you expecting? In the places where shadows overlap each other they will obviously be darker. If you simply want to make your shadow larger, use the Spread property and only one shadow.
