Hey there,

Great work on the recent updates to PS and the CC in general. We appreciate your hard work!

As a UI designer, I'd love to see a feature that allows the creation of a vector asset that can then be cloned and reused in multiple areas. With the various screen sizes that are catered to these days, this would be really helpful.

The workflow and usage could be something like this:

Step 1: Create a vector icon via a shape layer
Step 2: Create instances/clones from the original that can be reused elsewhere.

Changes could be made to the master/original shape layer and then these changes would be reflected in the clones that appear throughout the design.

Both the original and the clone would be vector based and scalable. An option to either tie their scaling together or allow them to scale independently would be ideal.

The primary benefits would be reusability, easier updating across multiple elements, and overall more efficient management of the document.
