Notes may cast a shadow when drawn on maps.

The following new attributes control the appearance of shadows:

On very large maps (and/or less powerful computers) it can help with performance of Map view is shadows are disabled by setting Shadow to 'false'. There's no preference to do this app/TBX-wide but stamps to agents can help. With agents consider use of the inside() and descendedFrom() queries with $OnAdd action of $Shadow=false. To reverse the setting use the same query but with $Shadow=true. Or write a toggle action:


Of course, being a toggle, a stamp like above would only be useful if all notes selected had the same $Shadow state!
