Can anyone tell me why I cannot cast the shadow when using the 3D Style:  Detailed Shading (with shadow clicked on)?  On the other hand, I can have the shadow of window frame inside the room when chose another 3D Style: White Model with shadow.  

 

p.s. I attached two screenshots for illustration.Detailed Shading with "shadow" clicked onDetailed Shading with "shadow" clicked onWhite Model with ShadowWhite Model with Shadow

don't rely on the view naming, check the actual view settings

Both use hardware acceleration.  The one without "interior" windows is vectorial shading. 

I avoid the vectorial engine; it's slower on big files and goes wire frame on you with any navigation, which is crazy annoying to me
