I have no character styles in my recent installation of Cloud InDesign CS6 and want to know how I import these effects.

    Character Styles and Drop Shadow, (an object-level effect), are not related. There is nothing to import.


    To apply a drop shadow to text, select (black arrow) the text frame and choose Drop Shadow from the fx menu at the bottom of the Effects panel, (Window > Effects). The Drop Shadow dialog opens where you set the parameters of the effect.

    But you can import any text styles you like form other documents by going to one of the styles panels and chooing Import Styles from the panel context menu.
