URGENT! Drop shadow option not available for text in adobe InDesign CS.


I have a new one page document, with a text box at the top.  I typed a heading and highlighted it, but when I  got to "Object ...Drop Shadow", the drop shadow option is grayed out and not selectable.  Please advise as to what I can do.

Hi Sheana,

To use a drop shadow on text you need to select the text box with one of the Selection tools. If you highlight the text with the Text tool the drop shadow option will be greyed out.

Good Vibes!
