Feature request: Move & Copy Layer Effects to other layer

Recommended Posts

It would be really helpful if I could copy layer effects to another layer, like in Illustrator.

Copy: alt + drag the fx icon (on layer) to a new layer and the effects should be copied. Very often, e.g. when using outlined text this is necessary.

Move: drag fx icon (on layer) from one layer to another layer (e.g. to move effects from a layer to parent group

Will the following not achieve this?

Copy layer

Select second layer > Edit > Paste FX

Yes, that is a workaround for the copy fx. However it is not the same from a workflow perspective.
When iterating fast, it is very cumbersome to have to do this every time.

Additionally this is not helping for moving the fx.
