It's very easy to create a layer from the only effect applied to a layer, or layers from all effects – but you cannot create layers from an individual effect, or selection of effects, once a layer has had more than one applied.

Instead you have to create only the effects you want to convert to layers, then (after converting them) create those you wish to retain as effects; or duplicate the layer, create the effects you want to convert, convert them, then throw away the duplicate layer.

It would be nice if, when selecting one of several effects you not only got the option to Create Layers but also still had the option to Create Layer for the effect(s) you had selected.
