Is there any way (in Designer or Photo) to copy the Layer Effects of one layer and apply them to another layer (so you can have precisely the same settings)? 

 

I used to do this in Photoshop by command-dragging the effect onto another layer (I think it was command ... some modifier anyway!).

 

Many thanks :-)

 

(Edit: I like the fact you can have the Layer Effects panel open and then select different layers and the panel updates to show that layer's settings. That helps a bit with entering the same values on another layer.)

In Photo

 

Copy the source layer, Select the destination layer, Select 'Edit, Paste FX'.

Hi, is it possible to do on Affinity Designer? I really want to do it there but I can't seem to find it.

Yes. Copy the layer (right-click on it in the Layers list, or highlight it, then press Ctrl+C.

 

Insert into other layer Using the top menu item Edit, then Paste Style or Paste Fx.

A rightmouse click + Ctrl+V on the target layer would be more convenient/intuitive  ...
