Dropshadow applied on text is not appearing in PDF output

Applies to- All QuarkXPress versions and on both Mac and Windows OS

Background: 
When the color of drop shadow is lighter than the color in background; then drop shadow applied on text does not appear in PDF output

Solution:
1. Select the text on which drop shadow has been applied and is not appearing in PDF output
2. Open Measurement Palette and switch to Drop Shadow tab
3. Uncheck “Multiply Drop Shadow”.
4. Export the project as PDF and it should appear fine.

Note: “Multiply Drop Shadow” option should be checked when the shadow is black (regardless of shade or opacity) but unchecked when the shadow is in lighter color.
