Drop Shadows

You can add a drop shadow to both graphic and text objects. This effect can set an object apart from the background or impart a sense of depth. A shadow can have any color, opacity, or gradient, independent of the object with which it's associated.

To add a shadow:

1.
Select the objects to which you want to apply a shadow.

2.
Drag the shadow offset control to set the shadow's angle and distance from the object (Figure 12.107).

Figure 12.107. Drag the shadow offset control to set the shadow's angle and distance. The shadow in the control represents the actual shadow.


The numbers in the shadow offset control indicate the shadow's distance from the selected object, in horizontal and vertical pixels. The sample figure represents how the shadow looks for the selected object.
