Currently, if a layer has styles but all are not shown (the individuals, not the Effects group, though this feedback applies to both states) I'm unable to clear those layer styles. I don't understand why I need to have those visible to clear them. If I want to get rid of all effects on a layer I shouldn't need to turn them on to do it.

How are you trying to clear them?

What is preventing you from clearing or deleting them?

Sorry. I can of course click the fx icon, I'm referring to the Layer > Layer Styles > Clear Layer Styles menu item that you can turn into a shortcut.

This is still a problem in CC 2015. Is there a solution to this?
