    Using Black Outer Glow: no joy.

    Relictangula

      In Illustrator CS3 I've tried using a black outer glow around text objects with success.

      However, when I place said text over another coloured object (i.e. a white square), the outer glow doesn't appear correctly.  I can see the outer glow peeking out from underneath the coloured object but NOT surrounding the letters themselves.  When I drag the text to an empty area, the black outer glow appears as it should.  It's as though the effect is there, but is somehow blocked by the underlying object.  I've re-started Illustrator, opened new files, etc.  I can't seem to solve this problem on my own.

       

      If anyone has some kind of answer, I'd appreciate it!
