A question came up in one the Silhouette Facebook groups about how to create a long shadow so I put together this mini-tutorial graphic. As you can see, it isn’t automatic, but not too difficult, especially when using an offset like this. I am posting it here in case it might be useful to some of you.

you can also make a ‘long’ shadow by using the shear tool. i sheared my word just a bit, then did an external offset to .125 and sheared ‘just the offset’ to where i wanted the shadow.
Thanks for the reminder, Kat. For those that have DE, the shear tool is a great technique for creating cast shadows, which are a little different from this.
short, sharp and sweet, thanks for the tutorial
Love the tutorial. Brilliant! Thanks so much.

Whoa! My mind is blown!! Thank you.?
I have a question. I saved an article the other day and now cannot find it. I have several files in silhouette I made and used but now when I try to open it pops up a block that says this file is not compatable. What can I do.
This is a bug. Contact support for instructions on how to fix it.
I had no clue!! I have to say thank you, I have learned so much from watching your tutorials and happy to have found your blog!!!
