I would love to be able to have 2 different drop shadows, inner shadows, gradients etc in a single layer. Very often I have to dupe the layer, put 0 fill and apply extra styles that way. It's inconvenient and messy, especially when trying to apply the same effect onto other layers.

Also, it would be great if I were able to sort the effects. Meaning, I could put drop shadow above or below inner shadow, stroke above the inner shadow and bevel, etc.

It would be great to be able to add more than one specific layer style to one layer. Consider I want 5px red inner stroke and 10px black outer stroke with 50% opacity at the same time. Also, I would like to be able to move the layer styles up and down so that my "gradient overlay" layer style with 50% opacity can be over my "color overlay" layer style. Now I have to duplicate the layer in order to achieve this and I guess it is an unnecessary effort.

Please see the attached image.

That's how to do it! how can we get this in front of Adobe. Nice work. I'd also like to be able to add another, and another, and another of each Effect, so for example I would end up with 2 or 3 stroke layers on top of each other. Roy do you feel like UI designing this for us too? :)

I think it should be the exact same principle as in the layers panel. Two buttons below this list one for adding new effects (dropdown) and one for deleting selected effects.
