I have copy pasted an object from one Blender file to another file. I wanted to link the materials of the pasted object to the other objects, since they'll have the same material nodes.
A) I'm doing Ctrl+L to link the materials but nothing happens.
B) I tried Ctrl+A apply all transformations to the copy/pasted object just in case it resets the objects data, but that ruins the node settings, the emission is suddenly lost and goes flat.
What could be the issue?
