At the request of, or challenge from I should say, Jeff Harrison - I have added an extra feature to the above macro. If you run the macro and press the Create Inner Shadow button you get a black inner shadow, or white if the White Shadow checkbox was ticked. 

NEW: Pressing the button with a PLUS sign on it expands the macro interface and provides a button which opens the colour picker dialog. From there you can choose a custom colour for the inner shadow. After choosing your colour press the Apply Inner Shadow button next to the custom colour button to create your inner shadow. I was even kind enough to use the Americanized spelling of the word colour: i.e. color Stick out tongue

Please excust the over-compressed video...here is the macro in action (the macro itself is attached):

Messieurs Jeff, Jack et Joe,

thank you kindly for your positive feedback, that's the kind of stuff which motivates me to write more macros. Big Smile I feel happy that I managed to make something which you guys found helpful. Afterall, you guys are helping people in here all the time and I think that is great!

Best regards,
Brian.

Thank you Brian,

It is a pleasure to use your macros. If everyone was willing to give so generously like you, our world would be completely different.

Thank you Brian! You've made a good thing even better! Big Smile

Here's a sample... :-)
Note, I found a bug: make two shapes, group them, then run.

Hi Jeff,

wow, I wouldn't have even thought of using it on an image like that, I really like the result. The image looks so flat and dull by comparison when the video goes back to the start and shows the original image.

I will look into the bug tonight and either figure out a way of making it work with groups, or build in an error handler and message notifying the user it does not work on groups.

Best regards,
Brian.

Diane and Louis,

thank you very much for your kind words! Jeff picked up an issue when trying to use the macro on grouped shapes, so I will try to fix that one up tonight.

Best regards,
Brian.

Thanks Asterix,

your compliments are appreciated. I still need to fix up the issue with grouped shapes, but I won't be able to get onto that until tonight.

Best regards,
