To add a drop shadow to an object

1 Open the Interactive Tools flyout, and click the Interactive Drop Shadow tool.

2 Select the object to which you want to apply a drop shadow, and do one of the following:

• Position the cursor over the center of the object to create a Flat perspective

• Position the cursor over the right side of the object to create a Right perspective

• Position the cursor over the left side of the object to create a Left perspective

• Position the cursor over the bottom of the object to create a Bottom perspective

3 Drag the end fill handle to position the drop shadow.

• For a list of objects to which you can't apply a drop shadow, see "Working with drop shadows" on page 488.

• An object must have a fill before you apply the drop shadow for the drop shadow to be visible.

^ • By pressing ESC when you're dragging the Interactive Drop Shadow tool, you return the object to its state prior to dragging.
