Summary0016281: No shadows in PDF exported while setRedraw(False)
DescriptionWhen using a script to export a PDF after setRedraw(False) has been set, any objects with a drop shadow will be missing that shadow in the output PDF.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a new file, create a shape (e.g. a square) and apply a drop shadow.

In a script, or in the script console, run these commands (substituting a valid filename):
pdf = PDFfile()
pdf.file = "c:\users\ntfostert\desktop\shadow-test.pdf"

Additional InformationThis can obviously be worked around by moving or removing the setRedraw(False) line in the script, so it probably isn't a big problem, but this tripped me up in a complex script and I spent a while trying to narrow it down.
