Textbox Drop Shadow

Hi guys, 

I've run into a strange problem, and I want to get some clarification as to whether or not this is a technical program or a functionality of Articulate (I'm new to the software). When I create a textbox and type in some text, I have the capacity to edit the Shape Effects with only a reflection. The drop shadow, glow, and soft edges function do not work. 

My question is that a normal function of textboxes? I don't entirely understand why I can add a reflection but not a drop shadow or glow, as logically I feel it would make sense for either all 4 functions to be applicable to textboxes or none at all; yet somehow, only 1 of the functions works. 

Any thoughts or opinions about the issue?

Thank you!

- Victoria
