Transparency Effect bug

Transparency Effect bug - Effects all objects on spread instead of only selected object.

I select a regular rectangle shape object with a solid fill (yellow) and change it's transparency under the effects menu to 75%. I have another regular rectangle object with a solid fill (turquoise) that's transparency is 100%. However, once I change the yellow rectangles transparency to 75%, the turquoise rectangle appears as if I've also changed it's transparency to 75% - not the desired result. When I change the yellow rectangle object back to 100% transparency, the turquoise rectangle object appears at it's original 100% transparency state. The change in transparency also effects the color of other objects on the same layout.

    I'm having the same problem. If I reduce transparency on one object it shifts the colors on all the others.

    Must add - any new effect I add to any object changes the color of the other objects on the layout (drop shadow, etc.).
