    Hello all...

    Is there a short cut to change the drop shadow color and color overlay on a layer? Something like.. select the layer... hold keystroke_____ which gives you a color selector. That would simplify my life some :)

    You can copy a layer style and paste it to another layer or a group of layers. Im not sure about setting a key command.

    Thanks for the reply... I am aware of he process to copy layer styles.

    My goal is to speed up my work flow. Here is an example..

    I am working with a client with a mock up and several layers of graphics in a certain color Spectrum. They come back and want to see it in a totally different color spectrum. I have to go back and open each layer and change the layer in both drop shadow and color over lay.

    What would be nice to do is select the layer.. hold the a key stroke and select the color and drop shadow color with out having to open the layer properties. Just to copy and paste the layer properties between layers does not work because each layer is in fact different.
