Shadows in floor plan

It's pretty cool. Here an example test image, its just polygons layered over each other, the second with the inner polygons selected and with Drop Shadows from the attribute palette enabled:

You can even use it on symbols, having drop shadows appear for ALL objects in the symbol or just for the overall perimeter of the symbol. (Since a bathroom sink with shadows would look quite dramatic, but a bit silly.)

Since it's now an attribute, it is also possible to assign it by class as well:

Yup it is very Effect-like, and yes you can give them their own settings per-object or you can link them to a classes settings for it. It lets you control Page or World units as well so that you can use it on objects both on sheet layers and in design layers without things getting annoying.

The main idea being to save you a lot of post-processing work in things like Photoshop etc.
