\"Anchored and Floating Shadow
Type your text, then copy and paste it. Select one text frame, right click on it and choose convert to curves. Select the rotate/slant button and skew the letters to make them look like a shadow. Align the other text frame in front of the skewed text to give it the shadow effect. Play around with the angle of the shadow text to give it different looks. If you raise the other text frame slightly above the shadow text, it will appear as a floating shadow\"
