i don't see a problem with dropshadows set via the properties panel nor with code.
Yeah well, I do see a problem.
try resetting your flash pro preferences, FAQ: How do I reset Flash professional to default configurations and preferences?
if that fails, you could try uninstalling, cleaning and reinstalling (Do a clean install)
This is not a problem with preferences. This is inexplicable, documented behavior.
When you apply a drop shadow to an HTML5 display object, the Distance and Angle properties are set to zero. You can't change them in the Properties panel.
That is not a drop shadow.
That can't be right. And since my current project has 32 Flash files that also have to be published to HTML5, I was hoping for a better solution than having to recreate every drop shadow via code.
I am experiencing the same problem as well. At first I thought it might be fixed in CC 2014, but I see that you are running the 2014 version (I am on CC 2013) and this bug seems to still be in there. In addition, I tried clicking "reset filter" and got an interesting result, it reset the angle and distance (but didn't make any visual difference) and you still can't modify it. Must be a new CC "feature."

That would have been a great find for a workaround.
I did report it before posting here. I got this email message in response:
