Drop Shadow Missing
I am running GIMP 2.6.10 and this week drop shadow disappeared out of my Filter list. Last week I was using it, now it is just gone. Oddest thing. Don't know what caused it

RE: Drop Shadow Missing
You have lost two other filters, in the same menu section: perspective and x-hatch. Check that you have a "drop-shadow.scm" in the scripts directory of you gimp installation. If so, in the .gimp-2.6 directory of your user profile, rename menurc to menurc.disabled and start Gimp. It should be recreated, and with some luck you'll have your menu repaired.

The Drop-shadow.scm was still present
