Photoshop CC 2018: Unexpected behavior when editing Brush Opacity in upper toolbar

When using the Brush Tool, in the Options bar at the top, when clicking in the Opacity box to type your percentage, after the first number is typed, the cursor jumps to the beginning of the box. EX: when changing from 100% opacity to 50%, click in the box and select 100%. When you type the "5" for 50%, the cursor jumps to in front of the 5, making you type 05% instead of the 50% you want. It's not a major issue, but it is a pretty annoying issue.

I can't recreate this. 
To help you skirt the issue for now (and possibly permanently), are you aware of the opacity and flow shortcuts?

See point #4

I could not reproduce the problem on Mac.  As another unhelpful wiseguy suggestion, let me suggest changing Opacity with the Microsoft Surface Dial (if you're on Windows).  But seriously, are you on Mac or Windows?

I'm sorry. This is a 4 1/2 year old Windows 8 machine at work.

with the brush tool active just typing 5 will set the opacity to 50% if you would rather skip the edit field altogether. (shift + number for Flow and alt/option + number for Smoothing)
