Black outer glow on colored background

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to add an black outer glow to a shape thats located on a colored background in affinity designer, but it doesn't seem to work! When I put the same shape directly to the artboard, then the black outer glow appears, but as soon as i try to move it to a colored background it disappears. Am i doing something wrong or does affinity simply not support a black glow on a colored background?

Hi Masterkatten,


Welcome to the Forums :)


In the Layer Effects window could you please make sure the blend mode is set to normal? (see attached)
