Photoshop 20.0.04: Layer Styles for Embossed "Metal Look" not working correctly

Hello,

I use PS 20.0.04 CC 2019.

 I created a logo that uses emboss and a few other layer style styles to make a nice metal looking logo. I saved the layer style as a "New Style".   When I created an entirely new project the next day and used the brush tool (with the same settings as the day before), and then selected the saved layer style, the brush stroke looks nothing like it did the day prior.  I.e., the brush stroke didn't have that nice embossed metal look.  In fact, it looks very low quality and non reflective.

 Any help I can get would be appreciated.

 Thanks,

Can you provide a file where the effect is applied to a layer that looks correct and another where it's applied and looks incorrect?

Hello,

After going back and reviewing all the settings, I found that one setting under Bevel and Emboss\Shading\Altitude was set to 30 and not 74.  Once I set it to 74, it fixed the problem.

Thanks for reaching back out and offering your help!!!!  I was really perplexed with this problem, but solved it.
