Hello everyone,
I have a Lower Third project with several Comps which contain Player Names, Team Names and Country Flags.
How could I by soloing a Layer in first Comp make solo layers in other Comps respectively?

For instance, Solo Comp1.Layer1 makes solo Comp2.Layer1 and Comp3.Layer1,
Solo Comp1.Layer2 makes solo Comp2.Layer2 and Comp3.Layer2 etc.

Please see screenshot of my project to make things clear:

Or how to workaround it in another way?

Although you could write a script to do this, there's no out-of-the-box answer to your exact question.

Instead, for automation like this, I'd use a tool like CompsFromSpreadsheet:
