I'm designing some tcolorboxes with the breakable option, which I have used it a few times before, however, now it seems not to be working as usual (breakable option changes the background color and disables drop fuzzy shadow option)

Normal use:

When it comes to the new page break:

            (frame.south east) -- cycle;
    }},

\begin{ejem}{}{}
    \lipsum[1] \\\\

\end{document}

I have tried to use the colback option instead frame engine=path + colframe (I think that is the error origin), but it didn't work.

You need extras={frame engine=path} instead of just frame engine=path.

Drawing engine options are special. They are (re)set for every box of a broken break sequence by the specified skin (in your example the skin is empty). Thus your frame engine=path will only take effect if the box is unbroken. To change drawing engines for every box of a break sequence, no matter broken or unbroken, you need extras={<options>}.

See more info in tcolorbox's package manual (v5.1.1), sec. 19.5 "Extra Options for Partial Boxes".

  • The folded orange corner disappeared in the breakable box, compare Example 0.1 and Example 0.2

  • That's the expected behavior of overlay unbroken. Replacing it with overlay or overlay unbroken and first will solve the problem. Jul 31, 2022 at 15:27
