updating drop shadow text from the libraries?

Dear Friends,
I am a newbie in InDesign. I am creating the text with a drop shadow in Indesign. If I drag it to the library as text . I can update it by editing the library item, but it doesn't have the drop shadow. If I drag it to the library as a graphic it retains the drop shadow ,but it will not update if I edit it. Is there any way to do this so I can edit and update the "shadowed" text. It works if I create the text in PS drag it to the library. Then it updates it and is editable as well. Can I do completely within Indesign?

Thanks for your help!
