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.

So I just spent the weekend...playing my own game. The one I released last year. Yep you heard that right.
Goal for MZ? None... I'm still curious how to finish my VXA project and how it looks like when it actually finished. Which will take at least another two years. Coming late again to the party.
Finding it amusing that people are posting support questions in new threads for an engine that isn't even released yet. Touch and Archeia are the only ones authorised to say anything, and there's only one active thread where they'll be answering questions.
I think my goal for MZ ... is to actually release a game and not have twenty technical demos and debugging projects. Let's see if I can manage that. ;o
I am starting to enjoy writing. I never thought I would enjoy it since my dyslexia was holding me back so much.
Thanks to the community here :)
