You can change the color, effect, or offset of a shadow in Shadow option. Click Shadow icon ( ) on the right sidebar, and then choose a build-in shadow effect that you want.
You can also go to Home tab, click Shadow button in Style group, and then choose the shadow style you want.
To choose a color for the shadow, click Color in the Shadow dialogue, and then click the color that you want. To change to a color that isn't in the theme colors, click More Colors, and then either click the color that you want on Standard tab, or mix your own color on Custom tab. Custom colors and colors on the Standard tab are not updated if you later change the document theme.
To specify the extent that you can view the shadow, move the Transparency slider or enter a number in the box next to the slider. You can vary the percentage of transparency from 0 (fully opaque, the default setting) to 100% (fully transparent).
To specify the size of the shadow relative to the size of the original object (object: A table, chart, graphic, equation, or other form of information. Objects created in one application, for example spreadsheets, and linked or embedded in another application are OLE objects.), move the Size slider or enter a number in the box next to the slider.
To set the radius of the blur on the shadow, move the Blur slider or enter a number in the box next to the slider. The larger the radius, the blurrier, or "fuzzier", the shape or line will be.
To specify the angle at which the shadow is drawn, move the Angle slider or enter a number in the box next to the slider. By using the Angle and Offset options together, you can place the shadow anywhere relative to the shape.
X Offset and Y Offset
To set the distance between the shadow and the shape, move the Offset sliders or enter the number in the box next to the slider.
