That was a good one. I knew some of the fussy little problems I was having resulted from "creation point" parameters and now I know what it is. Thanks much Dave, as usual. I primarily us SkecthUp for working out the aesthetics of a design idea I have. I then also use it for quick 'what if' and dimensioning tasks. As such I don't use shadows much but, I still find it fascinating to learn how you do things like that.
