In Photoshop CC, when changing the opacity of a layer, it changes the opacity in other open documents where opacity was selected.

Here's how to recreate the bug I just noticed in Photoshop CC:

1. Make two New documents (settings don't matter)
2. Create a new layer in each document and use your selection tool to create a shape (let's say a square). Fill that shape with a color.
3. Now, in the first document, go up to the Opacity field and TYPE in a custom number, like 50. Make sure you do NOT use the slider bar, or the problem won't be recreated. After you type in the number, do NOT click on anything else or hit Enter.
4. Go over to your other document and click on the layer you made the shape on. Change the opacity of that one to a different custom number, like 35.
5. Now go back over to the other document. You'll notice the opacity changed on that one to the same number (35).

To get around this, one has to either use the slider bar or be sure they hit ENTER after typing in a custom value. Otherwise, you may be changing values in another document without knowing it. Sounds like another bug that needs addressing.
