I often will copy a layer in the layers palette via option drag. If the original layer is linked to another, the new layer is also linked to the orginal layer I copied as well as any other layers that original was linked to.
Is there anyway to option drag to copy a layer in the layers palette without the new layer being linked?
I just tried it and it immediately broake the link. How about using Cmd J followed by Cmd ] to move the copied layer beyond the linked layer?
I just tried it too. Again. And it definitely does not break the link when option dragging in the layers panel. At least not in Photoshop CC.
When I drag linked layers to the new layer icon in the layers the layers are copied linked to each other. However they are not linked the orginal layers they were copied from. To remove the link all I need do after draging to the new layer iocon is click on the link icon in the layer palette. Or click twice is some were not linked to begin with.
