Does anyone still have an old version available?
SHP Builder 3.37, 3.36 have the nasty bug, that the normal frame is misplaced when viewing the shadow frames.

Thus it's hard to manually draw shadows along a building outline or check if the shadow doesn't has any gaps between building and shadow.

I'm not sure, but iirc 3.35 was working fine. Maybe it was an even older version.

And this isn't only a misplacement by exactly one pixel, but it even depends on the zoom level and size of the SHP

Just play with the numbers to find other versions.

Another way to do it is to just zoom in very far (like around x10) so that the misplacement is only very minimal.
Alternatively you can instead just
  • disable shadows (Options > Shadows),
  • delete the shadow frames (Edit > Mass Frame Operations > Delete Frames),
  • then copy all of the normal frames to where the shadow frames were (Edit > Mass Frame Operations > Copy Frames),
  • manually draw the draw the shadows on these copied normal frames,
  • turn shadows back on (Options > Shadows),
  • remove all pixels except for the shadows themselves from the shadow frames (Tools > Fixes > Remove Useless Shadow Pixels)

and you're done.

But yeah... I'd also like to see this fixed #Tongue
And since we're somewhat on the subject already, a split/merge shadows function would also be quite useful Idea
