Drop shadows unnecessarily re-render when placing new images, slowing workflow
As of 5/22/18 using Illustrator 22.1, all existing drop shadow effects within document re-render each time a new image is placed. Rendering can take up to 30 seconds to process (a Progress dialogue box appears), which slows down workflow considerably.
This is never an issue with InDesign or Photoshop, so I'd love to see this fixed in Illustrator. Thanks!
