I have an object with a slight drop shadow that i only want to appear on the left and bottom sides. On the screen It appears to seamlessly blend into the top and right side but when i print i get residual border from the drop shadow that doesn't look so nice. I'm an indesign novice if you can't tell! Any help is appreciated.
did you know, you can paste boxes and groups into boxes? Imagine a picture box with a drop shadow. Copy/Paste this into an empty graphic-frame, and youll notice, you can use the bounds of the top box to cover the shadow where its needed.
Its a bit like Illustrators "Schnittmaske erstellen".
To copy/paste into an frame use ALT+CMD+V
SO helpful thank you DBLjan!
