Allow extraction of smart object items.
Currently you can rasterize the smart object - or manually drag the layers from the smart object back into the document - but it would be great if I could just select "extract objects".

And what if the smart object has been resized? Then you can give the alert:
This smart object has been scaled, would you like to extract the layers in their original size or in their scaled version?
[Original] [Scaled]

This feature has been implemented in Photoshop 2020 (version 21.0). Right-click on a Smart Object, and a new command "Convert to Layers" will convert that Smart Object back into one or more layers.

Enjoy!

Actually I am in pre-release forum and I wrote some list for Adobe of what to be aware before it goes public.

Adobe prefers more like: "If it can't be right don't do it at all" meanwhile I prefer "Do anything helpful even if the result won't be as it should be in 100% cases"
