Add shadows to text, specifying thickness and direction of the shadow

Manipulate Text
Next on the tips list are some utilities for manipulating text objects. Did you notice the shadow boxes around the title of Harry's artwork? Jeffery Sanders' Text Shadow Box (Tip #2031) provides the highlighting. Jeffery's version of the text shadow box includes a dialog box that lets you set the thickness and direction of the shadow (figure 4).

Copy the two files SBOX.LSP and SBOX.DCL from the download file to a folder in AutoCAD's search path. Load the AutoLISP code in SBOX.LSP and type SBOX at the Command line to display the dialog box. This nice utility spruces up your artwork, as in figure 4.

Andrzej Gumala has dropped a couple of cool tools into Harry's tip box over the past few months, and this one is no slacker.
