Pshop Lib vs. Illus Lib:  In Illustrator CC2015.5 Library items are placed on the art board at actual scale (1-1 or 100%).  In Photoshop, Library items are automatically scaled to the canvas of the destination file.  The fix requires users to use the Transform > Scale > HxW = 100% to resolve which is extra work.  While efficiencies are gained by the Library, the added step causes efficiency loss.  Idea >>> There should be a setting in preferences to override auto scaling of Library items to 100% irrespective of destination canvas height.

Hi Jon, I think I have good news for you. There is already a preferences for this. Go to Preferences > General... and uncheck "Resize Image During Place"

Let me know if this does what you desire.
