Resetting Smart Objects

Resetting Smart Objects

Since no-one else seems to have done this. I seem to remember making this request once before, but here goes again

? The ability to take Smart Object Transform values back to their default (the original resolution of the embedded object). A simple control click on the Smart Object with the option "Reset Smart Object" would do. Or "None"

I will also add to this one other Smart Object feature request also made previously -

? The ability to show in the layers panel, Smart Objects that are linked Instances of each other - so that these are easily distinguishable by icon, from Smart Objects that are independent objects.

Well, I was hoping you'd use the bug/feature report web page - but hopefully my helpful friends in QE or Tech Support will see this and file the request in our database. (... because I already wrote the code and need a request in the database to check it in)


1. Are smart objects not so smart when dealing with space

I was very excited to start using smart objects, but was very disappointed when I found out that it is not so smart on space. What I mean is this. I used the "place" feature to add a raw file (.nef in this case) and I wanted to duplicate it, brighten one of them with an adjustment layer and combine it with itself to highlight certain areas. Anyway, regardless, before I even tried the adjustment layer, I duplicated the smart object and noticed that my file size doubled! I thought smart objects were supposed to "reference" a file only and not bring it in as another "full" copy of the image.
