How to adjust shadow brightness in Sections / Elevations when using "Own Surface Colors (Shaded)"

How can I adjust the brightness of the shadow being cast by objects in my Section when it is using the "shaded" option? When I use "Own Surface Colour (Non-shaded)" it seems to give me an option of changing the Shadow polygons

The color of the shadow is linked to a hatch and a hatch pen, just edit them

Yes adjusting the hatch is available for "non-shaded", my query was how to adjust when using "shaded"

Can you illustrate you request ?
What's your graphics aim precisely ?
Why my screen capture do not satisfy yourself (expect the choice of hatch and color of hatch of course) ?

I have the same question. I am aware there is a way to edit the fill of the shadow with the elevation set to "Own Surface Colors (Non-shaded)". But is there a way to adjust the shadows fill when your elevation is set to "Own Surface Colors (Shaded)"? Or am I misunderstanding this setting? Thanks.

By using "Own Surface Colors (Shaded)" I think you don't

What I'd like to do is adjust the darkness of the fill when using "shaded"

See examples 1 and 2. With example 1 (non-shaded), you can adjust the shadow fill, say I can set it to various fills

With example 2 (shaded), this setting does not appear. You can only show shadows ON and OFF - no editing of the shadow fills.

What's the reason behind in Example 2 you cannot edit the shadow fills?

My guess would be that Shaded is not generated using the vectorial engine hence the lack of fill options.
