I have a very simple layer effect - a 4 pixel outline - that I would like to apply to multiple individual layers.  Is there a workflow to save a layer effect so that it can be applied over and over again?  I thought it might be a style, but I can't seem to save the layer effect as a style.  And I don't see anything that allows me to copy / paste a layer effect.

Thank you.

Affinity Designer (ADe)  or Affinity Photo (APh) ?

I'm assuming you have drawn a square/rectangle the size of the layer?






Right click on your new style and rename it.

You can also right click and Create Style




then right click on and rename the style as firstdefence describes (above)


or if you copy the item (Ctrl + C) then you can Paste Style (Ctrl + Shift + V)




there is also a copy and Paste FX option




Depending on what you are doing.
