new Affinity Designer since yesterday here
I'm currently working on my first project with the tool and have encountered something strange.
I'd like to use to outer shadows for some text elements. This works quite well, unless I put some black background behind the text. Then the outer shadow (no matter which color it has) is not being displayed. It seems, like the shadow is hidden behind the background color. When I export the file as a PDF, the outer shadow is back again, both on the white and the black background. I attached 2 screenshots to show you the problem.
Is this a bug or is there any setting I need to change, so the outer shadow is always shown, no matter which background color I use?
Thanks in advance!
