Add block shadows instantly in Illustrator with the Stylism Plugin and AG Block Shadow Tool.

You can apply an AG Block Shadow to a single object or to a group of objects, and the tool will know to apply it as if it were one compound path.

Adding a block shadow to a group in Illustrator:

๐ŸŒ Open the AG Block Shadow panel (Window > Astute Graphics > AG Block Shadow)

๐ŸŒ Use the flyout menu to reset the panel to the [Default Settings]

๐ŸŒ Select your group of objects and click the Apply AG Block Shadow button

๐ŸŒ Adjust the Length of the shadow

๐ŸŒ Adjust the colour output, the blending mode, and opacity

๐ŸŒ These settings will remain the same until you reset back to the defaults in the flyout menu

๐ŸŒ You can also use the flyout burger menu to Remove All Selected AG Block Shadows, or Detach All Selected AG Block Shadows
