Is it possible to create a drop shadow layer without fill? I just want to have the shadow effect but not the fill and once I turn off the fill the shadow goes away with it.

 

Is there a workaround for this?

Make an object with a shadow and a white fill (very important). Then apply a blend mode of Multiply (chose that from the "Normal" menu below Opacity).
