Easier way to set color for drop shadows
Right now when you need to change Drop Shadow's color, you have to click effect in Appearance palette, then click color and only then choose color.
But when you have a LOT of shadows — you are screwed (because Drop Shadows can't use global swatches: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/34789156-drop-shadow-can-t-use-global-color-swatches).
You have to click EACH shadow and change it.
Why not to make shadow's color appear in Appearance the same way as fill does?
It will also allow to change color of multiple shadows for one object at once (yeah, I have to layer shadows, because AI doesn't allow to tweak shadow distribution, neither with profiles, as PS does, not with numbers).
To distinguish fill from color you can draw it inside circle, for example, and not square, or change position, or something else.

Found this because I was looking for an easier way to change the colour of multiple drop shadows so I'll put a vote in for this.
Bump this, Illustrator now 2023 v27 ands it still has to be done one at a time, smh
