Is there an option within preferences (or somewhere else?) that I can activate that disables the following photoshop question from popping up on my screen (requiring me to hit "ok") every time I draw over an image (that must be rasterized first)? A tool that automatically rasterizes the image or automates the required "ok" I must select that would keep this pop up from appearing every time I draw?? It would be super helpful and save the interruption and additional click.
The pop up notification is as follows:
Adobe Photoshop This smart objet must be rasterized before proceeding. Edit Contents will no longer be available. Rasterize the smart object?
No, there isn't box to check nor option to turn on to automatically rasterize Smart Object layer when you are trying to paint on it. I do not think it will be implemented soon although you have link above to request such feature.
