Copy > Paste Fx Causes Rescaling of Drop Shadows

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a "feature" or a bug. When I copy/paste layer styles between objects, it causes weird upscaling/downscaling of Drop Shadow/Outer Shadow offsets. The only thing I can think of is it is somehow tied to the height of the second two objects. It also works in reverse.

I attached a video to show what I mean.

Hi @Sean P 

I have the same problem with Inner glow, outer glow, etc... Everything with the pixel parameters on FX gives random pixel sizes from the original element copied (and I have "Scale with Object" unchecked)

The same goes for Styles. When I'm working on UI elements, I need consistency of FX and it would be nice when I apply a style to an object to keep the exact pixel values instead of random pixel scales.

Waiting for the fix for a long time.

Ditto. Found this post and it explained a lot of issues.
