Information from MEB was a response to a particular problem of converting Image Layer to Pixel layer. Of course, all linked (afphoto, afdesign, afpub) documents are also displayed in the Resource Manager.

It's interesting to compare the processing if one switches to the Photo Persona and paints on a Linked image layer vs painting on a Linked .aphoto file.

If one paints onto a Linked image layer (which shows as (Image) in the Layers panel) the layer is simply rasterized before painting on it, and it disappears from the Resource Manager.

If one paints onto a Linked document layer (which shows as (Linked Document) in the layers panel) one gets this interesting message from the Assistant:

And then, in the Layers panel, the (Linked Document) layer has become a kind of Group:

To be honest about it, I have never been sure about what the Resource Manager should be showing, what should cause that to change, or what might be a bug or some local problem on my Mac that causes something else to happen instead.

That was all my screenshot was supposed to show. I had intended to include some text to make that clearer but before I could do that some weather related problems became an issue that required my immediate attention, so I just quickly posted the screenshot & moved on to deal with that.

What people actually want is behavior similar to smart objects in photoshop… perhaps publisher would let you expand a linked file to manipulate individual aspects of that file and use the studio link features with the layers. Obviously placing images would need embed, link (not modifiable in publisher), Studio link (modifiable in publisher)

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

For the equivalent of smart objects, use embedded, not linked, documents.
