This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Allow renaming of Layers in Layer Styles dialog

In the "Layer style" dialogue box (double click a layer on the layers panel (Windows version - I guess CTRL & click on a Mac maybe? Or right click and chose "Blending options") in Photoshop, along the left of the pop-up box are "styles" which can be applied to that layer.

The styles shown have a specific and fixed layer order. "Bevel & Emboss" at the top through to "Drop shadow" at the bottom.

They cannot currently be re-arranged, but sometimes different effects could be achieved if the priority order could be changed. For example, "outer glow" underneath/ behind "drop shadow" or "inner glow" above "inner shadow" or "color overlay" behind "gradient overlay".

I would like to see a way to CONTROL THE ORDER that styles are applied, either on a layer basis, document wide or both.
