The original concept of having a 'link' for the smart object came from Jeff Tranberry in one of his posts. At the time he was using video layers to save the path of the original file. I suggested using the layer metadata of the smart object layer itself and we worked together to create the panel.

Even though this isn't working for me, it's an unbelievably awesome plug-in. I'd pay this this plug-in, hands down.

I glad you like it. I got some help from someone at Adobe and I think that is now should work with Photoshop CS5 64 and 32 bit on Mac. I updated the file so please try LinksCS5.zip again. And please let me know if that does indeed gets it working for you.

Edit: Tested on Mac 10.6.3 with Photoshop CS5 Extended.

Doesn't seem to be working. It's also not an mxi file anymore so the Extension Manager wouldn't install it, so I tried placing the files in the correct location, but I could have gotten that wrong.

When you unzip it it is a zxp file which is the CS5 version of mxp. Extension Manager CS5 will install a zxp file. A mxi file is what Extension Manager uses to create the mxp/zxp package depending on which version of Extension Manager you use.

I just downloaded the zip to make sure that I uploaded the right file. Extension Manager CS5 does install it for me using WinXP. You might have to open Extension Manager CS5 first. I understand on some systems double clicking on the zxp file will open the wrong version of Extension Manager.

Turns out when added the code to check which version of Photoshop the panel is running under I had a typo in the jsx that was stopping the panel from working. That is corrected now and I have tested in on WinXP and Mac 110.6.3 with CS5
