Inside Outline (fx) Opacity and Blend mode

Recommended Posts

I have a shape (Stroke + Fill), with Outer shadow (fx).

Add Gradient overlay (fx),

and Colour overlay (fx),

.and Inside Outline (fx).

Now I set Opacity or Blend mode for Outline.

To my great surprise will not start to shine Color overlay, or Gradient overlay, or Shape (his Stroke and Fill), but Shadow!

I expected the Shape stack with fx to look as follows,

but using the Outline will probably cut everything under it, except for the shadow.

Is this a bug, or is it an expected feature?
Thank you


Edit: Current implementation (object trimming) I understand.

Outline is "line out of object". In order to achieve this in all circumstances (even when selecting Inside and Center alignment), the object must be trimmed.

Then it is strange if the shadow is formed by the original object, but not by the trimmed.

In any case, it would be advisable to point out this destructive behavior (object trimming) in help.

Thank you
