I think what I may be looking for exists in Fireworks maybe, but I haven't messed with it. Basically, is there a way to make a style sheet for an object?
Say I have an object and I apply x layer styles to it, then I want all those layer styles on multiple objects throughout a document. Then I want to change the strength of a drop shadow, how would I set it up so all I had to do is change the drop on the master file and it would apply to all with this "style" set on it?
This is now somewhat possible with Photoshop CS6 or newer.
You can place all the layers you wish to apply the style to into a Layer Group. Then apply the layer style directly to the group.
