Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher 18.104.22.1681. This is a bit of a weird one and probably won’t come up in normal use but I thought I’d mention it. Edit: “Problem” fixed. It wasn’t a problem, just me not knowing what I was doing. See posts below for an explanation. I have a document where I added some basic text and a blue rectangle to the default master spread. Then I went to the normal page and edited the master spread ‘detached’ and changed the blend mode of the text to Erase. Then I went back to the master spread and gave the text an Outer Glow. I then went back to the normal page and added two new rectangular layers. Then I moved the master spread layer above the two rectangles and I am now in the position you see my GIF (AFPUB also attached). The Erase mode of the detached text – which is still attached to the master spread size/position-wise – knocks out the colour of the yellow and green rectangles as expected but the glow is still drawn below the two coloured rectangles. This doesn’t seem right to me. Surely the master spread layers and their related effects should be drawn within the sequence defined by the Layers panel. (The blue rectangle is fine and seems to be drawn as it should be.) Is this a bug or am I missing something? effects-always-drawn-first.afpub
