Shadows on 3D view
SoftPlan Version:
2014

I'm trying to show the difference in shadows on the south side of a house throughout the year.

I'd like to show December 21 and June 21 for my location, which is all entered in the lighting and sun options.

Nothing I do seems to change the shadow line when I change the date - I'm using Textured Mode.

If this makes sense, any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

Custom

Make sure that Custom is selected in the lighting settings.

Please see attached images. 

Please see attached images.  Still don't know what's wrong.  Sometimes I get shadows, depending on what I select, sometimes none.  But the shadows, when I get them do not change according to the date, as they should.    Help please.

Diffuse

In your sun options turn on Diffuse.
