Hi Bill,

What do you mean when you say you can't change Shadow color?
Is the shadow always grey/black? Or are you unable to change the color swatch?
What is your starting point?
I just tried, and there is no issue on my end in 7.0.456. (There is an issue where Light Source Shadows are still unaffected by the Shadow color, but this will be fixed in a later update.)

I can change the Color and Contour Color.  But I cannot change the Shadow color swatch- it's just locked up on B/W.  Cannot access the color palette or color picker.

It's because Shadow is textured. Notice the texture thumbnail in front of the swatch.
You can click the thumbnail to edit the texture and its colors, or right click it to delete the texture.

I assume this was originally a textured Library material?

Ah!  I accidentally grabbed a textured toon, instead of outline, fro the library.  All is well!

I have to say, toon has become a most adaptive and useful material now in KS7!
