When I flatten the image or even simply merge layers, all of the bevel and emboss work I did disappears!! I need to know why cs6 does that when that has never happened in any other version for over 20 years! If I don't get a solution by tomorrow, I'll have to buy Corel instead, which I do NOT want to do, but I need this feature to work properly ASAP!

Zoom in to 100% to judge the effect.

So far every time this has been reported, it was user error because of looking at the effect while zoomed out and not realizing how the final result looked at 100%.

Also, make sure you have all the Photoshop updates installed.
