Why, when I create and save a Character Style in one Photoshop file, does it not appear in the CS palette in other, open files? And why won't the style apply when I've got text selected and click on a character style in the palette?

 

I work in Photoshop in Windows on a client's Hosted Virtual Desktop. Thanks for your wisdom...someone?

Regarding your second question, it should apply the style when you have the text selected and click on that style in the character pallet! Make sure that there is no funny override for example. You can clear the override from within the character pallet flat menu.

For what it is worth: if you drag that text layer with a style to another open document that Style will be carried over and be available in

The correct answer is to save the character style, make an action that does that. Then go to the Events Manager, and set it so that whenever you open a document, it plays that action.
