Hi Ahmad,

forwarding the message to the dev-ML where your question might be better suited.

Blurry shadows are what is well-known from macOS or Qt, some realistic and natural soft shadow. The request was made in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48722. Currently we just duplicate the object for the shadow, AFAIK. Simple solution is to make the border somehow smooth. Better when this smoothness can be controlled by the user from a hard moon-light shadow up to David Hamilton. I don't see much work on the UI as we have a checkbox on/off that needs to be replaced by a slider. The tricky part is to render everything in a blink.
