    Can you have the same smart object in two files?

    Mah-kitah

      The situation:

      I have a 'base' file A, with two (different) smart objects B and C. Now I want B and C to both contain a third smart object D, and I can't get that to work.

      I can place the same file as a smart object in B and C, but it becomes two different smart objects, which are seperately editable. I would like to be able to edit smart object D and the changes to be visible in both B and C and in turn in A.

       

      Is this at all possible?

       

      and please, I'm not looking for workarounds. I have plenty of those, but it would save me a lot of time time if this were possible.

       

      thanks
