I am working on a file in Illustrator. In one part of the file, I earlier dropped shadow on a text and it looks absolutely fine. This can be seen in screenshot #1.
Now later in the same file, when I am trying to drop shadow on another piece of text, its getting blurry (screenshot #2). I am not sure if some settings have unknowing changed in illustrator. I tried to drop shadow in a new completely different file as well, but that is showing up as blurry too.
I will be grateful if I can get some help.
Double check the blur in the drop shadow settings (it looks like it is set to 0 in pic 1).
Unless you expanded appearance, you should be able to edit your drop shadow effect from the appearance panel when you select the type/object it's applied to.
Double click where it says "drop shadow" and it'll bring up the dialog box. Look at the setting for blur. Sounds like you want 0.
Which version of AI? If AICS3 or earlier, then the first was applied from Filter>Stylize>Drop Shadow, the second from Effect>Stylize>Drop Shadow. You can achieve the same look from the Effects drop shadow by setting the Blur to 0. With AICS4, all drop shadows are from the Effect menu.
