I try to give a outer glow effect on text that goes over a white rectangle; in the real case it's an image with a white background. As you can see, the shadow effect does not apply on the parts going over the rectangle. I can't find out which configuration it is that influences this.
Thanks in advance and best wishes,
I believe the problem here is that the rectangle is filled with the [Paper] swatch. The outer glow you've applied to the text uses the Screen blending mode and will only show against a darker background or no background at all.
Changing the blend mode to Multiply will make the glow show over the [Paper] fill, but may have other undesired effects as well.
That solved the problem! Thank you very much.
