I keep all my objects as a smart objects in PSD files, and when I need to change something, I go inside smart object and make changes. After latest update to 21.1.1 I noticed that if I go inside smart object, remove mask and "Revel All" to have original image without mask, it changes the size of canvas and smart object image becomes bigger in canvas size, after saving smart object in my original image brake the aspect ratio, looks like instead of changing canvas size of smart object it fit the new image inside same size. I hope I explained clearly.

I attach an image to show what I mean:

testing this now and i don't have the bug. Can you verify that you're using 21.2.1 and not 21.1.1?

can you retest with the latest update when you have a chance? I've tested here and it seems to be working as expected.

it appears to be unique to the file itself. i migrated all the layers to a new file and all of the layers distorted themselves. but at least they distorted consistently so i simply selected each layer and transformed them to 100%x100% scale. i have no idea what is up with that original file. i would upload the psd but it is a company asset. thanks for following up. ive never seen it happen before (using PS for 25 years) and this freaked me out.
