If you start with a 'New Smart Object via copy' (right click the layer) then you have the original to fall back on. Does that help?
As a request, this needs to be asked in the Feedback site. You might even get a response from Jeff Tranberry.
Chris Cox no longer works for Adobe, which is a pity as we valued his contributions to this forum.
[EDIT] Something else I sometimes do, is double click the SO to open in new window, and then save that as a PSB file.
Thanks for the answer but in my precise case that did not really help
The 'New Smart Object via copy' (right click the layer)
gives me a exact copy of the transformed version
and if you save the psb file it's just like reimporting the original wich is not a transform reset
Sorry for the late answer i did not get notifyed of your answer
A student asked me this exact thing. Using Puppet warp or envelope distort it is possible to reset or even mask away the distortion. But the only way I have found to reset a Free transformation is to go into the smart object.
Select all layers in the PSB create a new smart object which is then transfered into the the original with "Duplicate layer". Would be great with a command to release a "Smart Object to Layers", and "Reset Transformations".
I'd be interested in any workarounds or fixes for this.
Yes exactly, the warp can be reset, but if you used ctrl-dragging the transform handles there is no "None" or "reset button"
