Repeat Grid Drop Shadow Behaviour
Not so much a feature, but I'm wondering if there's a way to make repeat grids and drop shadows play together a little more friendly - right now, drop shadowing then repeat gridding causes the drop shadows to be cut out.
STILL an issue. This is seriously basic stuff for a design program, c'mon Adobe.

This still is an issue. The drop shadow should exceed the bounding box of the repeat grid.
This bug has been fixed and should be in the next public release.

you guys at XD can make repeat grid automatically ignore the drop shadow and focus on the object itself. so the drop shadow come out through the repeat grid borders
agreed! this causes pain with aligning things if we have to enlarge the size of the repeat grid to accommadate for shadows that go outside the repeat grid bounds

Yeah the work around is to enlarge the repeat grid and move the drop shadowed element away from the edge, but then you lose smart guides and makes aligning things a pain.

When you have an element with a shadow inside of a Repeat Grid, the grid cuts off the shadow. It would be great to have the shadow overflow out of the grid.
We plan to have Repeat Grids automatically handle this, but until then you can manually fix it.
Cmd-click on Mac (or Ctrl-click on Windows) or double-click (may need to do this more than once) to select item with shadow. Then move it down and/or right.
Hope this helps,
