Minor Glitch in Layer Styles?

Postby pdxrjt » Sat Aug 12, 2017 2:42 am

I have created a layer with text. I am exploring various layer styles (bevel, inner glow etc.) It used to be I could check: Preview on Image and check and uncheck various effects. Now however, if I select bevel (for example), check Preview on Image, then uncheck bevel and try to check another style, nothing happens (usually doesn't even let me check it.) However, if I uncheck Preview, check a different layer, then recheck Preview, it works fine. Anyone else notice this behavior? TIA

It's working okay for me on PSP 2018. I'm assuming that's what you are using because it shows on your profile. If you are using a different version let us know.

From past experience the Layers Palette can be unstable. Just the other day I lost all the icons on the layers Palette and even a reset of the menu through the customize menu didn't work. Finally I cleared the cache via File -> Preferences -> Reset Preferences and checking "Delete All Cache Files".
Using PSP2018 version 20.0.0.132 Also installed versions X4 thru X9

Thanks for the idea. I tried Delete All Cache Files and that didn't help. Yes, I am using PSP2018. Ah well, not the end-all but would be nice if it worked. Hopefully they will iron it out.
