Unable to remove outer shadow layer effect in AD

Recommended Posts

I have a graphic in Designer that has an outer shadow and a gradient overlay applied to it.  I saved and closed the file yesterday, but when opening the file today I can no longer edit (remove) the outer shadow, but am able to edit the gradient overlay.  Is there another way to remove the shadow or do I need to recreate the entire graphic without the shadow? (which is counter-productive)  Is this a bug?

  1. Can you upload the file?
  2. Does the outer shadow show in the fx panel?
  3. How did you save the file (File > Save?) or (File Export...)

The file is attached.

You have the outer shadow applied on both the child and parent layers.

Remove it from the parent, or both.
