    something i noticed leopard does now, probably in the .2 update.

    As cool as it is, I don't like not having the option to turn this on/off.

    I know there are workarounds, but I love the ability to hit command shift 4, then space, then click a window without having to drag a crosshair.

    Any ideas on disabling it?

    It's always been that way. I have posted a couple of screenshots from my Leopard desktop back in 10.5 and 10.5.1 and it's always shown a drop shadow. Why does it matter about the drop shadow when just creating screenshots?

    Did you make a mistake on your second line saying that you DON'T like having the option to turn it off/on? Did you mean you DO want the option? At any rate there's no option.

    i would like to be able to toggle it on and off.

    I guess i never noticed the drop shadow until recently.


    thanks for the quick reply.

    i used a double negative in my op.

    I know this is OT but are you a skateboarder? Is that you in the video?

    And?

    Suddenly no one else would ever want to find the answer.

    The 2 posts I came across were number 1 and 2 in a Google search result for me trying to find the answer. Neither post had the answer, yet they were the first 2 I clicked on in Google.

    So now, I gave the answer, hoping to help others.

    Maybe I should take your approach and just move on next time. Sorry to offend you.

    oh man!

    thanks for posting that reply dude, I got an email notification that someone replied in my thread and was very surprised. Glad it was actually relevant.

    I figured you came upon this thread in a google search because of either mroogle, or just plain google being very favorable to this site.
