    Stop selecting objects when I click on an effect.

    I have a rectangle with a long, soft drop shadow. I now can no longer select anything that is technically 'under' the drop shadow, because clicking on the drop shadow selects the object casting it. This is really really bad and extremely counterintuitive.

    I'm smart enough to know which object is casting the shadow because I put it there. If I wanted to select the object casting the shadow, I would have clicked on it. Now I can't click on the thing I really want to click on — all the shapes' clickable areas are wildly overlapping and I need to re-order my layers just to click.

    All this feature does is let me move an object by ~not~ clicking on it.

    Awful.

    I've just updated Illustrator and this is killing me. What a strange strange feature to introduce. Needs to be removed ASAP.

    It's horrible. It's like scroll-jacking, where some JS won't let me scroll the way I want to scroll. This feature won't let me click where I want to click. An effect is just an effect — it shouldn't be a default selectable object, especially given how long and soft our shadows are these days. Need this one resolved ASAP!
