Add a shadow to the title text

Let's continue enhancing our title page by adding a shadow behind the title. Right click anywhere on the title text. This achieves two things: the text box containing the title is selected, and a menu pops up.

Select the Shadow Objects... option in the popup menu.

The context menu

The Shadow dialog pops up. The distance between the shadow and the text is currently 0 so the shadow cannot be seen (this part of the dialog box is highlighted in red.)

The Shadow

Increase the distance value to 3. The effect of changing the distance can be seen in the preview window. Now click OK .

Adding a shadow to the title

Now the title has a shadow!

The new shadowed title
