Shadow question

Hi all

I’m starting on a new website and I want all-around the page a shadow so it looks like it floats above the background. Can I give the page itself a shadow or should I draw a box slightly smaller than the page and apply a shadow to it? And how do I apply a shadow thats on all 4 sides?

…you’ll need something like a wrapper-item to do this perhaps. This item doesn’t need to be slightly smaller, it just needs a top space - either by positioning (absolute) or margin-top (relative).

If it is “just shadow”, you could do this with the inspector’s tool (pen) and set there (section shadow) something like: Offset: 0; Blur: 5; Spread 2 with an Opacity of let’s say 33% and you should be good. Angle doesn’t matter cause of the Offset 0.

The above looks like this:

If you furthermore plan to have rounded corners, I’d go the css route and create an extra class style and apply this class to the wrapper-item. The downside of this method is that you can’t see extra classes (or extended DIV styles) in construction view (the truth is in the browser).

This is a pity however I long learned to accept it and deal with it. This gives me more control on my styling (border, border-radius, gradients, box-shadows …) however Freeway is meanwhile pretty good in these things.

Cheers
