Use this cell to apply a shape shadow that is different from the page default (the page default shadow type is defined in the ShdwType cell in the Page Properties Section).

Simple shadow types are described as offset shadows in the user interface (UI). A simple shadow gives the effect of the shape being shadowed onto a parallel plane located behind the shape. Oblique shadows are described as oblique shadows in the UI and give the effect of a shadow being cast onto a plane perpendicular to the shape.

For a list of predefined simple and oblique shadow types, see the Style box in the Shadow dialog box (on the Home tab, in the Shape group, click Shadow, and then click Shadow Options).
