Greetings fellow graphicers,
I’ve got a smart object containing text, and I want to copy it and put in some different text. But when you change the copy, the original changes too. Can you tell me how to avoid the original changing? My chosen weapon is Photoshop CS4 .
Cheers and many thanks!
I have had this exact problem when using smart objects, I did not find a solution would be interested to find the answer!
Create your Smart Object and Right click on your Smart Object and choose New Smart Object via Copy
super easy to achieve.
right click on the duplicate and select “new smart object via copy”
Cool! I’ll try it as soon as I’ve munched some tortillas and watched the sunset….... Well just the first one actually, I live in Scotland and can’t see the sun.
those are the little tricks that save time haha
Oh my god this would have save me so much time if only i had known!
anyway, kaixer shared the right way. once the smart object is ready just right click on it and choose “new smart object via copy”.
since the option itself creates a new layer you don’t need to create the duplicate (as i wrote in the previous message)
