I am new to illustrator, if this is too basic do provide links for me (tutorial). I've made a shape, and I put styles on the layer, gradient, color overlay, opacity reduced, I know how to copy the shape, but to get the exact same gradient, opacity, how to do it? it's like a blend of styles.
There's no way to transfer Layer Style settings directly from Photoshop to Illustrator.
The best you can do is make note of the settings in Photoshop, then recreate the appearance settings in Illustrator.
