This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Ability to scale layer styles when transforming a layer

This problem has plagued me ever since layer effects existed. Why can't you scale layers with effects on and have the effect scale with it!!! I've lost count the number of times I've scaled artwork in size to notice down the line that the drop shadow or keyline has shrunk. It would be so simple for Photoshop to have a preference that lets the effects be scaled with the layer. I cant see the benefit of not scaling the effect, I don't know anyone who does. If i can resize a entire document and scale the effects why not the layer. This problem has been kicking around for years and so far has not been addressed in any upgrade. The work around of making the layer a smart object effects the way it interacts with other layers if it is a glow or drop shadow or something that reacts with other layers so it doesn't work.
