Chapter 12. Enlivening Documents with Dr... > Formatting Shadows and 3-D Effects

Formatting Shadows and 3-D Effects

In addition to adding textures and colors, you can apply shadow and three-dimensional (3-D) effects to lines, arrows, shapes, AutoShapes, backgrounds, and freeform shapes. Generally, you’ll want to use shadow and 3-D effects when you want to create a sense of depth in your drawing. Both the shadow and the 3-D effects are accessible from the Drawing toolbar.

Note

You can apply either a shadow or a 3-D effect to an object—but you can’t apply both. This means that if you apply a 3-D effect to a drawing object that has a shadow, the shadow will disappear. Likewise, if you add a shadow effect to a 3-D object, the 3-D formatting will be removed.
