- Select the Text Frame with your Selection tool. (Not the Type tool)
- In the Effects panel (Window > Effects), click on the Text listing.
- Under the fx menu at the bottom of the panel, choose Drop Shadow.
- Apply setting and click OK to apply.
Thank you for your answer. I was using the Object Effects menu, not the Window Effects menu. Everything I read just said Effects Menu and I was not aware of one in the Window menu.
However although the Window effects menu does show fx at the bottom, there is no "text" category. Following is copy of the Effects menu. I tried just using the fx menu, but got nothing. Incidentally, what does Knockout mean? I tried with it checked and with it not checked.
I take it back - there was a text item on the Effects Menu - don't know why I didn't notice it the first time. The copy I attached did not survive the transmission. I am now getting a shadow, although it doesn't look much like they used to look. I will fiddle with it and see if I can get it llke I want it, although it will work as it is.
Thank you for your solution!
