Missing shadows in VBE 13

David Collins

I've just now noticed that I have no shadows in ArchiCAD 13 VBE. The same file in ArchiCAD 12 VBE does give me shadows. I see that F3 is supposed to toggle shadows on and off but this has no effect.

Any ideas what's gone wrong here?

This turned out to be user error, compounded by new behavior and menu terminology in VBE2, as well as a not particulalry helpful help file.

The VBE opens in Gouraud view, which does not display shadows, so F3 has no effect. Switching to Headlight, which does support shadows, won't show them until you toggle F3, which didn't work before so I failed to try it in Headlight mode.
