I'm trying to get the viewport to render shadows to help visualize depth when working in an orthogrpahic view. I toggle the shadows option in the viewport shading menu, but it seems like the only thing that happens is the objects are shaded a little darker. I've tried messing around with all of the parameters with no success. I've included a screen cap of objects with and without shadows switched on. I'm sure its something simple that I'm overlooking but I haven't been able to figure it out. Thanks!
here is a screen recording of what happens now when I turn on shadows, and change the shadow options parameters.
