Summary0015206: Stronger drop shadow with larger blur
DescriptionDrop shadow UI proposes a "width of blur" setting.

Problem is :
The wider the blur, the less the shadow's opacity.
As a consequence, a large blur shadow is so thin it's allmost not visible (or not at all visible).

There is no reason why user wouldnt want a strong opacity shadow with a large blur
It should be possible to have large blur AND shadow with strong opacity.

- Do not thin the shadow when blur size increase
- or allow to have more than 100% opacity when it has to be divided by the blur size ?
Additional InformationUploaded test document :
- with 18mm blur, shadow disappear
- with 4mm blur, max shadow is very thin
- workaround having 2 or 3 same text frame on same position
- with 1,8mm, shadow

So as to circumvent this restriction (max value is 100%), i duplicate the shadowed element once, twice, thrice as needed.

Please provide ability to set opacity value up to 1000%.
Of course, maximum resulting opacity would be 100%. A >100% opacity effect would only change <100% opacity value.

Eg 200% effect would result in same rendering as duplicating the element.
resulting (200% of 10% opactity) = 20%
resulting (200% of 60% opacity) = 100%
