Just like you can "Ignore text wrap" it would be very helpful to be able to "Ignore effects" on objects and text frames.
Often you have a lot of shadows and other effects that you don't want certain objects to be affected by.
In the example here I have put a dark outer glow on the text frame that I want to affect the background picture – but not affect the logo or the bar code box.
I know you can get around it with making sure that these objects are put on top of the text frame – or to put them in another layer. But quite often you have a lot of effects going on with different text frames and objects, and it gets very complicated and time consuming to make sure which objects are effected and which are not.
So it would be much easier if you could just chose an object or text frame and click an "Ignore effects" box for that object.
