Hmmm I've never had my strokes disappear when trying to add shadows. Not really sure what advice to give you. Hope you get it figured out.

Press the shift key while adding the second style. Unless the styles are not compatible, that will solve it!

Barbara, I always learn so much from you. I have to remember this - I always think it's impossible to add 2 styles! Thank you :)

Barb's way is easiest. You can also right click on the effects on the layer and choose "create layers." This will put each effect on it's own, separate layer, and then you can add a shadow to the stroke if you wish. I like this because you can move shadows, etc., independent of the other effects.

You could also convert your stroked object to a smart object and then apply the drop shadow, though I usually use the SHIFT trick, as well! :)

Thanks for these tips. I just thought it couldn't be done. Never occurred to me to ask if it could be!!

You are (all) welcome! It's fun, because each effect layer can be treated as a new layer and recolored, have a new blend mode applied, etc. In Bobbie's case she wouldn't need to add the drop shadow to the newly created stroke layer, but could just grab her "independent" shadow layer and move it around. You can even hide the original object layer and just have a shadow layer left on the page, which creates new and fun possibilities.

Wow - so much to learn! Dot I will have to study up on that a bit and give it a try - I never have understood how to do that. Thanks for your suggestions!

Another way that hasn't been mentioned is to create a new layer, control-click on the thumbnail of your item that you want to add a stroke to, then you have the marching ants. Then with the marching ants active, highlight the new layer. Then add your stroke as you always would. Then you can add a drop shadow to that layer alone.
