    illustrator CS5 drop shadow - blur not rendering correctly

    Callie_ Community Member

      I just got a new computer and have installed Illustrator on it.  This is my first time using the program on this computer.  I created this file on my old computer in Illustrator.  When opening it today, in the newly installed version of CS5, the drop shadow blur effect is not rendering properly.  However, as you can see in the screenshot, one of the words has a proper blur.  Everything else does not!  Anyone know what to do, short of re-installing the whole program?  Red arrow is the problem drop shadow.  Purple arrow is the drop shadow that blurred correctly.
