I have a text box with Drop Shadow Effect on the text itself. When I edit the text, the shadow does not change. I discovered quite accidentally that Undo (CTRL+Z) then Redo (CTRL+SHIFT+Z) fixes the issue.
However, when I change the angle of the object (text box), the text moves but the shadow remains in place. I cannot fix it even by adjusting the Effect angle options.
I have another issue where I have two separate text boxes on the same page with the exact same font and supposed font size, but the text is quite obviously not actually the same size.
I have ID 16.0.2 x64

I am also experiencing this I have a text box filled with black, in the effects panel I've set fill to 15% and applied a drop shadow to the text. I then updated the text and as you can see, the shadow still references the previous text. If I copy the text box into a new document the shadow gets updated and I can then copy it back into the original document. If I then try to edit the text in the new document, the same issue exists. Although I'm getting two paragraph styles carried over to the new document, a clue perhaps?

Wow. Thanks for the Undo, Redo tip. I've been struggling with this for a while. Drives me crazy !
