PS V21 introduced the "Zoom to Layer Content" shortcut with pressing Alt key while clicking on the layer group. Whoever at Adobe decided this was a good idea I'd like a word with you! Why do this when there are already several other perfectly good ways to zoom in/out? Like "Ctrl+/-", which works great.

And of course there is no way to turn this zoom to layer shortcut off. Seems someone at Adobe forgot that holding "Alt" while clicking a layer group is how we collapse/expand layers! I usually work on files with several art boards, each with many layer groups. It's crucial for me to be able to collapse/expand my layer groups from the view I'm in. Now when I try to expand/collapse a layer group, the whole thing zooms all the way in???? No bueno, Adobe.

Please please enable an opt-out of this shortcut option in the preferences panel, or change the shortcut to some other key combination, or better yet: just get rid of it, because it's unnecessary.
