By default the lighting comes from the west, therefore making shading to the east.

In this map (file attached) I want to change the direction of shading, lighting from north to make shading to the south.

How do I do that?

You could use the shadow pen (on the top row of tools, left of the zoom in icon) to erase the current shading, and then draw in new shading. To erase, click on an area already shaded and paint in the area you want unshaded. To shade, start in an unshaded area.

I don't know if there is a quicker method. Someone with more experience might be able to tell you.

There isn't a 'real' light source. It is purely a function of how you draw your shadows.
