Hi! I work professionally in Photoshop upwards of ten hours a day and hotkeys that work have been key to my efficiency levels. Previous to CS6 I used the number pad hot keys to control the opacity on my layers all the time (you can also do this for most tool opacity control fields). In Photoshop CS6 it works right in tool fields, but it is glitchy in the layers pallette!!! When typing 1-0-0 to set layer to 100% opacity it will not do it at normal typing speed. I have to type 1-0, wait exactly the right amount of time, and hit 0 again to achieve 100 percent. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!! It still works fine in tool opacity fields. It needs to work right in the layers box! Please please please release a patch for this, don't make us wait until the next version.

Hi Rachael,

You just need to hit '0' *once* for 100%

'00' sets to '0%' which is a new feature in CS6 (It wasn't possible to set to 0% previously using a shortcut.

Are you using CS6? This is a new shortcut for Photoshop CS6.

Yes I am using CS6. What about that shortcut?

I changed my company and there is Photoshop CS6. I used CS5 and I pleased. I don't understand, why change it. Brush or different tools opacity works like CS5 but layer opacity not.

What is shortcut fot 100% layer opacity?

Thanks

The shortcut for 100% is '0'
The shortcut for 0% is '00'
'100' was never a shortcut.

It was changed because previously there was no shortcut for 100%, and many customers asked for a shortcut (and even suggested using '0').

Uh sorry! My mistake.
OK but, I think this is a useless change. I don't like it.
