Embossed structure problems: can't match structure overlay to pattern

Hi guys,

 

(Edit: inserted pictures properly & captioned them)

 

I've just recently been confronted with the seemingly arbtrary inability to get an embossed pattern structure to exactly overlay its pattern counterpart below in 1 layer setting.

 

  1. Although the very same pattern is used, the embossed structure has an entirely different position
  2. on some computers, I can drag the embossed structure by hand, which doesn't work on another computer with the same file, same software, same OS
  3. dragging and dropping the same fill layers with patterns from one file, where I was able to drag the pattern around within the layer effects doesn't allow me to drag it around in the new target file
  4. snapping to origin has no effect
  5. the embossed part displays differenty depending on display zoom. I adjust it at, say, 30% zoom, but zooming in/out completely throws it out of position.

 

Could this be some setting I missed?

Thanks! 

 

The pattern:

The structure to be overlaid in the very same layer effects panel:

The mix of both, at exactly sthe same settings, unsing the very same pattern file:

P.S.: as visible on the screenshot, I have "solved" the problem working around with another fill layer with 0% fill, which I can drag around as a whole, but that's one more layer 🙂

Here are captures of the file this "style" originated from and the displaying problems in various enlargement situations:

Edit: "captions"

scaling problem broken at 12,5.jpg

(broken at 12,5 %)

scaling problem broken at 50.jpg

(broken at 50 %()

scaling problem OK at 16,7.jpg

(OK at 16,7 %)

scaling problem OK at 25.jpg

(OK at 25 %)

 

Here I can very well manually drag the pattern:

Edit 2: this also appears to be the case with the embossed pattern on the extra layer. When I zoom outz, the pattern shifts around. It seems if I apply and position it at 100% magnification, it comes out properly when merging, though I haven't yet tried to merge it with the shifted pattern applied...
