I feel the Export Layer Comp features does not work as it would appear or would seem. It says to export layer comps as separate files. Yet, the separate files still contain all the original layers and Layer Comps? I would have expected it to provide clean files for each Layer Comp with just the actual layers used in that comp, and only that layer comp name in the layer comps panel, if anything at all. This to me is no different than just doing a save as? Wouldn't this make more sense to have just the layer Comp layers for a particular Comp be in the new file? Hope that makes sense and thank you...

I'm usually using Layers to Files, but I agree that it has seemed that Layer Comps to files should only be the visible layers (the layers that make up the Comp), if PSD or TIFF, and flattened, as they are, when JPEG. We can then simply use Delete Hidden layers on such files, but that's an extra step it would be useful to eliminate. Or if there's a good reason to store ALL the layers in each file, then perhaps an option not to?
