Photoshop 2021 (v22.0.0): Incorrect stroke property behavior of Shape Layers in Smart Objects


I encounter the following issue in Photoshop Version 22.0.0:

Photoshop is enabling Stroke Properties on it's own when you create a Smart Object from a Shape Layer.


Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a Shape Layer in a new image using the rectangle tool. Set 'Fill' to any color and Stroke to 'No  Color' / Stroke Width to 0
    Create a Smart Object from this shape layer.
    Double Click to edit the Smart Object
    -> Stroke Properties on the Shape Layer are suddenly 'Black' and '1px'. 

The Stroke will not show up immediatly, but as soon as you change the fill color of the shapes, the stroke 

will be there. Also if you set the Stroke to 'No Color' again, as soon as you save/exit/reenter the Smart Object, stroke is back at 'Black'/'1px' again  



In Photoshop 2020 (21.2.4) when either 'No Color' OR 'stroke width 0.00' was set on a shape layer, it would set both values to 'No Color' AND '0.00' when you created a smart object from it.
