I opened an original flavour Pixelmator file in Pixelmator Pro and noticed that the shadows applied by the Style looked quite faint. Upon investigation it turns out that I need to use exactly half the blur in Pixelmator Pro to achieve the effect I want.

I think that this is more of a bug than a matter of taste since a 4px blur in classic Pixelmator is visible exactly 4 pixels away from the object wheras a 4px blur in Pixelmator Pro is still visible 8px away from the object.

(Pixelmator Pro 1.0.8 on macOS 10.13.3)

I can see you're definitely right — it seems logical that the pixel value of the Blur slider should correspond to the size of the blur. Thanks for another great bug report!
