Another option is to put the shape on another layer, which might be
below or above the layer with the text. You only edit one layer at a
time, so you would have hassle-free editing of the text frame even
though you can see the shape on its own layer.

A final thing worth knowing is that if you hold down Ctrl, you can
sequentially select each frame in a stacked positioning of frames on the
same layer.
