Hmmm... Windows? Mac? 
On my iPad Pro 12.9” with iPadOS13 beta 4 and latest Aff Designer it works as expected...

Windows. See my signature.

Hi m-b,

You're right, there's still a few issues here. I've logged them to be looked at.

I've also filled an improvement request to add this to Designer.

Thanks for your report.

This is still an issue in 2019. Copies all instead of just the style. Also doesn't copy the style across to the new layer exactly. One layer the shadow has a radius of 29, the paste is 30; offset 18 and then paste 19.5.

 

I want to copy the exactly amount to another layer without the program changing it for me.

So, I'm getting a similar but different issue.  When I copy a text layer that has effects on it and paste it elsewhere on the document it appears to have all the original effects as designed.  But when I go to print the document the text no longer shows all of the effects from the original copied design.  It seems fairly random as to where the effects are correctly applied or not.  Sometimes it's on the original, sometimes it's not.  It's driving me nuts. After copying and pasting and moving layers to try and fix this I can't chase down the original layer and I can't fix the layers that aren't showing up correctly because the settings all appear to be correct but when they are sent to print they most definitely are not correct.  This is a HUGE problem for me.  I'm having to start from scratch and I still don't know what is causing the problem.

Yes, one has to be careful work aeound this problem or else you muss up everything.

I don't really understand why Serif decided not to fix this problem that existiert for many years now. Sad.

Sorry, but you can’t use the shortcut for paste, you must use the menu command ”paste FX”... 

Cmd+Shift+V is Paste Style. And you're right, if they want Paste FX that isn't it :)

On Mac, Paste FX should have the keyboard shortcut Opt+Shift+V, I think. (It's Alt+Shift+V on Windows.)

Copy FX issue:

No sure, but the the Copy past FX doen not work anymore in my version : Affiny Photo 1.8.3.641
It copies, but the settings are messed up.
I copied the fx from the top layer (Edit, copy) to the lower image layer (Paste FX) and it made some complete different effect.
 

Did someone else also get this problem or is there something else going wrong?

I have run across this same problem. I'm using version 1.8.3 for Windows. Alt+Shift+V does paste the layer effect, but it does not duplicate the settings as expected. I don't know how the program is making its decision about which slider values to transfer. For example, I select "copy" for an object whose Outside Shadow effect slider settings are (top to bottom): 

21%, 43.2px, 36.4px, 0%

When I attempt to paste the layer effect to another object, the slider settings (again, top to bottom) are:

21%, 16.8px, 14.2px, 0%

At first I thought this must be happening because the source object's layer effect had the 'scale with object' check-box selected. But when I un-checked the box and tried again, I got the same result. It might be a feature and not a bug, but if it's a feature I'm at pains to know why I'd want to use it—I'll end up having to open the dialog and adjust all the settings anyway, just as if I were adding the effect entirely from scratch. No time-savings there.

Perhaps we will find this has changed in version 1.8.5?
