I've got a text area I'm building in Photoshop, and I've imported some Illustrator formatted text as a smart object.
Now, I'd like to make a slightly different duplicate of that text area. So, I duplicate the smart object, but as expected, making a change to either results in both being identical, since they're both linked to the same file. How do I take that smart object and make a second text area without re-building the text area in Illustrator? Can PS do this?
The only solution I can think of is to start again by making a duplicate AI file, make my slight changes, then import it to the PSD. Not a huge problem, but I'm afraid something will get goofed along the way.
Any better PSD-centric solution to this? Basically I'd like to duplicate a layer AND the linked file so they both have their own identical yet separately linked smart objects.
