Shared Layers / Dynamic Objects
Is there any way to have dynamic objects; that is, to clone an object so that any changes I make to the original updates all the clones too? I know that Shared Layers has this functionality, but it means that the position of any objects in the layer is also updated, so I can only use the object in the same place across canvases; I want to be able to do this but to have the object in different positions.

+1 Vote for me -- this would be very useful functionality.

Is there a way to do an "overlay" where objects in the upper layer can depend on objects in a lower shared layer (but not the other way around, of course) e.g. an object on an upper layer is attached to a magnet on a lower-layer object?

If you change the shared layer object (e.g. make it bigger), then the upper layer object is affected (e.g. it moves), but not vice versa.
