The Shadow Tab contains options for altering shadowing, opacity, and blending attributes of a figure(s). The tab will appear as shown below when selected in the Sidebar.


Values displayed in the Shadow Tab default to Points; however, alternative units of measurement may be typed in (i.e. pixels, millimeters, centimeters, inches, feet, etc.). These values will be automatically converted to their equivelent in Points after pressing the Enter Key on your keyboard or clicking on another item within TouchDraw.

For example, if you enter 5 pixels (px) as the X Offset, then it will be converted to 5 points (pt).


Pixels and points have the same number value after conversion when the default measurement is points; however, you can enter points or pixels for conversion to inches in other parts of the Sidebar such as the Adjustment Tab.

If 1 centimeter (1 cm) is entered for the X Offset, then it will be automatically converted to Points after pressing on the Enter Key or selecting another item in TouchDraw.


If 5 millimeters (5 mm) is entered as the X Offset, then the value will be converted to 14.173 points.
