Shadow in OG Pro 4.2.2 Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
How do I make Shadow off the default style?
You can inspect the Shape Tool by Option-clicking on it, then turning off shadows in the Shadow Inspector.

Hope that helps,

Thank you for the response, but I did not get the answer that I needed because my first question was unclear. I will try again.

How do I turn off Shadows for all time? Is there some sort of global preference? I do not want Shadows for any shape.
Inspecting the Shape Tool is how you effect global changes.

Objects that already have shadows won't be affected.

Oh well, I give up. Thanks for the help, but it is not working for me. I know how to turn off Shadow one shape at a time or for all selected shapes on the canvas, but I have no clue how to follow your instructions and make the instructions work so that future shapes added to the canvas will have Shadow off.

Click and hold on the little triangle in the lower right hand corner of the Shape Tool's button, then from the drop down menu select "Inspect Style". Go to the Shadow Inspector, turn off shadows.

Thereafter, all new shapes created with that tool will not have shadows.

Same goes for the Pen Tool, you can inspect its defaults as well.

Okay, how do I drag objects from the stencils with Shadow always OFF? For example, Flow Chart stencil objects have Shadow ON. How can I get each new object that I add to the canvas from the Stencil to be Shadow OFF?

Thank you for you patience.
Objects on stencils that have shadows simply have shadows, there's no global setting for them, they're just objects in a special kind of read-only document.

You can, of course, create a new stencil (or copy and edit the built-in one that you're using) that has no shadows.
"Vroom! Vroom!!"
Thanks, I have learned a lot.

I would have thought that I could global change attributes of objects in a Stencil. Instead, you kindly explained how to make a new Stencil to do what I want.

Thank you. All my Shadow questions are answered -- for now. ;-)
