Turn off shadow of preview


We want to make previews of parts in an assembly. Open assembly, right click on part, File Properties, Preview, Create preview now (On button select). In this way the background of the preview is white, thats oke, but some parts have a floor shadow. Is it possible that the standard setting of a preview is white background without a floor shadow? Now we must open the parts, turn off the shadows and then it's oke. Is there an easier way?

The background, including the shadow, is all part of the individual file settings. 


For existing files you will need to open the file, manually set the background colour and turn of the shadow, then save the preview.


For any new files you can set the desired settings in your template files so that all new files will have the desired settings going forwards thereby avoiding this manual step.


You could also create a custom macro to help automate the process.


However, there is nothing out-of-the-box for this, so to directly answer your question, no there is not an easier way.
