    The angle parameter of Drop shadow layer style reverts to default when reloaded in new file


      My questions is how to prevent the following from happening. I created a layer style drop shadow in a .psd file with the below parameters.

      I saved it as an .asl file that I could use later. When I loaded it into a different .psd file later that day some parameters stayed the same but the angle reverted back to 30 degrees from 120 degress all on its own as shown below.

      I just want to know how to keep layer style parameters I saved in an .asl file from reverting back to defaults when loaded in to a new .psd file.


      My systems parameters are as follows:

      Photoshop CS6 Extend Version 13.0 x64

      Mac OSX 10.8.2  with 705.44 GB used out of 749.3 GB available

      The only other software I am running is Safari web browser

      This is my first time trying to save a layer style and use it in a different .psd file other than the one I created it in.
