I am new to layer composition ("layer comp"). Found this feature recently and it's been a useful feature. I have a question though.
Suppose you have a number of compositions. Suppose all of them share a common layer. This common layer has layer styles applied to it. So, suppose that after creating a certain number of compositions, you find that that common layer needs an adjustment to its style and this adjustment needs to be applied to all previous compositions. I found out that I need to go back to each of the previous compositions, load it, redo the style and then update it.
My question is: is there a way to apply a change in the style of a layer, shared by many compositions, to all compositions that use that layer in a simpler and more quick way than remaking/updating them one by one?
I think this can be achieved by deselecting Appearance in the Layer Comp Options.
It would if the setting could be selected per layer but since it applies to all layers that are part of the composition, and not all layers should be treated the same in my compositions, if I deselect the setting, it will fix this problem but will create another.
I am trying to code a script that is specific to my needs. It will act like compositions but with more flexibility. It's been a tough task so far but I should get there, hopefully. :-)
