It's possible to disable the shadow by element, even tough it's not documented, but some elements won't have their shadow disabled.

For example:

skinparam ActorShadowing   false /' This         work '/

skinparam UsecaseShadowing false /' This doesn't work '/

Thanks for the feedback.

With last beta you can now have:

skinparam ActorShadowing   false
skinparam UsecaseShadowing false
actor actor
usecase usecase

Tell us if you find other issues!

Thanks, it works for usecases, but not for other elements, like sequence diagram lifeline activation rectangle.
