Directly beneath the Fill color swatch on the Style palette are two effects that you can select. The available effects include the following:
Shaded: This effect adds a gradient along one edge of the object to make it appear to be raised.
Soft Edge: This effect blurs the edges of the shape.
Halo: This effect adds a colored glow that surrounds the stroke of the shape.
Gradient: This effect adds a two-color gradient across the surface of the shape.
Image Texture: This effect fills the shape with a selected texture.
When a fill effect is selected, a dialog box of options automatically opens. After the dialog box is closed, you can reopen it at any time by clicking the button with three dots on it to the right of the Effect list. ...
