Issue with drop shadow and vectorized bitmaps

When a vectorized bitmap with alpha has a drop shadow, the drop shadow appears bigger on import than the actual bitmap.

This occurs because the software calculates the entire bitmap, while not taking the transparency into account. If you want to have a drop shadow on a bitmap element that contains an alpha channel, it's best to use Image layers instead of Vectorized bitmaps.
