I have a PSD that somebody else created and I need to copy certain layers over to another PSD. The problem is when I do that the angle of shadows changes due to them keeping the "use global light" checkbox checked when they added the layer style.
Is there any way of copying those layers to a new PSD and keep the actual angle correct rather than it reverting the default 120° angle.
Would converting the Layers to Smart Objects before moving them be an option?
Or setting the receiving document’s Global Light accordingly?
Otherwise I suspect a Scripting solution might be possible.
You could just duplicate the document and remove the other layers you don't need.
As the Scripting approach goes it seems one can get the Angle but not the Altitude for Global Light … this would only affect Bevel & Emboss but might still mess things up anacceptably, so it might not be a viable option.
In any case I wonder if switching off »Use Global Light« returning a Style’s angle to the default settings is really a good choice.
