    Why is InDesign CS6 adding shadow to other layers instead of just selected object?

    spneeds Level 1

      I have selected an image object to add drop shadow. The shadow then also appears on text and other placed objects on completely different layers. They (other text and objects) are not selected and do not have any effect applied to them.  In the effects panel I have global light off - as well. The text displays drop shadow regardless of its layer position above or below the layer with the image object and intended target.

       

      Any ideas?
