Calculate the bounds in Document Raster Effects Settings automatically
As for today, if you apply a Gaussian Blur or a Drop Shadow effect to a shape — with a large enough value — it often gets cropped.
A workaround exists — to go in Effect > Document Raster Effects Settings dialog and increase the 'Add' value, thus increasing the bounds of the image generated.
...but why is this still a problem that we, users, should take care of, really? Ai knows how large is the blur, it knows the resolution, yet it can’t calculate the tight bounds automatically. Like what, is there at least one user who’d like their blurs cropped? What’s a point of this in 2023?
Yeah, the "add" thing should be completely removed from the UI. Asking the user to manually estimate the dimensions of their raster effects is just weird.
It should be calculated automatically (per effect so you don't need one size fits all).

this is very very important. How this ancient thing be there?

Make AI adjust automatically for the need area.
