Global light can be switched off globally instead of on each layers?

Hi,

 

I am using latest version of photoshop and I need to copy multiple layers (mockup files) into one psb file.

My issue:

When I copy and paste layers with shadow and bevel & emboss, original effects change to a general or dominant global setting once I paste it into the psb file

so

all my shadows and effects on those similar layers change which then I have to change back otherwise the lighting isn't correct on the mockup.

 

I do not want to switch of global lighting on every single layer before copying, neither fixing this all the time.

 

is there a way to switch this automatic change somewhere in the menus to stop doing it at all?

I think what's happening is that every PSB works almost exactly like a PSD , when it comes to global light. The easiest thing to do would be to turn off global light on all layers, then when they're in a Smart Object, turn on Global Light for the Smart Object layer. You can then export that layer to a stand alone PSB.

Is that what you were going for?
