Ok, thanks all. I didn't identify the menu item because the german
translation "Abgesetzter Schatten" is unusual, at least I have never
read that before. Usually "Schlagschatten" is used.
And the default settings were so weird that I didn't recognize it as
drop shadow effect :)
just wondering if there is a drop shado filter dialog in inkscape?
Scrolling through the filter list I didn't find one, only different
kinds of shadow filter.
Of course I know how to create a drop shadow but repeating it over and
over and memorizing the settings is a bit tedious.
I encounter problems with the Oxygen XML editor due to the fact that the
SVG inkscape produces are Version 1.2 which the Batik renderer can not
fully parse since it does only use SVG Version 1.1.
The easiest way to solve the issue would be to restrict inkscape saving
to Version 1.1. How can I achieve this?

My use case is this: I want to use inkscape to annotate my pdf music
scores. Basically "highlighting" stuff different sections and adding
text, etc for performance directions.
One thing I'd like to be able to do is quickly and easily add common
musical symbols (examples here:
(I'm not sure why the heading is "Feta Font" and then it mentions
"Emmentaler font"). The example show is already on my system and
open-source. I have SVG font files files (which I've never used and
aren't showing up in my Character Map software) and .otf (I think; or
some other common font format) files. Additionally, I can have the music
program export each character/musical symbol as an individual SVG.
I thought the easiest way to do this would be to use a character map
application. On inspection, that seems to be less than optimal to say
the least (the fonts that lilypond uses seem to be spread through about
10 different font files, and may fields are empty. I have a very, very
hard time finding them there). It seems like it would be easier to
memorize the 30-50 utf encodings + the specific font name (is it
emmenalter-15 or emmenalter-16?) than using that. And, obviously that
isn't easy. Additionally, some font characters often appear together
(for example, the symbol for /forte, f/ often appears with an /m/ in
front of it as a modifier), and that just adds some complexity.
The other solution I think may be useful for other, more common
use-cases; however, I can't seem to find any implementation of it.
So, barring some unforeseen solution there, I think the better option is
this: to have some sort of "bank" or "library" docked tab that I can add
the desired symbols/shapes to. Then I can just drag and drop these into
different projects (this would probably involve having lilypond export
each desired symbol, opening the resulting SVG file in Inkscape, and
copying each vector into the "library").
Does this functionality exist somewhere that I'm just missing?
