Folder #1 is the original smart object(#1.psb as an example) with two folders below it with smart objects and with different effects applied to them.
I've duplicated folder #1 and created folder #2, I've clicked on the copy of the original Smart object(#1.psb) and selected Layer> Smart Object> Make Copy of Smart Object VIA Copy (see: New SA via Copy).
Now, I have saved the copied smart object as #2.psb(example) and the layer titled "New SA via copy" is linked to the right file. Now, I need to make all the rest of those layers below (in folders "still linked to original") the #2.psb layer link to the file #2.psb as well.
Q: Is there a way to achieve this without batch processing, clicking individually for hours, etc. etc. etc. If I were using inDesign I'd click on the duplicated link>relink and everything would be done. In PhotoshopCC it seems rather cumbersome and I've been provided this file.
My goal is to just duplicate, change the text and done. Instead I change the text and it changes for folder #1 as well as folder #2 so I made a copy of the Smart Object so that I could just edit that one and then all the effects would tie to it. Unfortunately this isn't working as expected and the linking process is laborious. Not my style.
