Block Shadow tool

The Block Shadow tool in CorelDRAW lets you add solid shadows to objects and artistic text. Unlike extrusions, block shadows consist of simple lines, which makes them ideal for screen printing and sign making. The Block Shadow tool is located on the interactive tool flyout.

You can adjust the depth and direction of a block shadow, and you can change its color.

A block shadow may contain holes, but you can remove them to create a solid curve object. Click the Remove holes button on the property bar to enable it.

To expand a block shadow that is generated from the outline, click the Generate from object outline button on the property bar to enable it. Type a value in the Expand block shadow box on the property bar.

The effect of this option is more obvious when an object has a thick outline. In addition, you can expand a block shadow that is generated from the object outline.

Click the Clear shadow button on the property bar to remove the block shadow.
