Photoshop: Zooms out while trying to subtract from current selection

option+command+clicking the layer used to subtract those pixels from your selection, however, it appears this shortcut has been updated with "zoom to layer". It still subtracts those pixels, but zooms out every time, which really interrupts my workflow.

This should be fixed in 21.1 update that went out last night.

Alt+click on the little arrow next to layer effect to expand/collapse layer effects globally still zooms to layer :(. PS 21.1.

I'm curious, what is it supposed to do to add the "alt" while clicking on this arrow ?

It hides or shows the layer effects for all layers.

It seems to me that this has only been partially fixed.  Alt-clicking on a layer still zooms the window.  Control/Alt/Shift combos are OK, but Alt alone is still zooming the window.  I'm I reading this right, that this is supposed to be a feature?

I think they for some godforsaken reason kept 'alt click to zoom' when you click on layer panels generally, but masked it away from when Alt+Ctrl clicking layer thumbnails (deselect pixels) or Alt clicking layer edge (clipping mask)

So if you tend to use that function for clipping masks you better not be a pixel off when you click or prepare to go for a zoom ride.

The function itself is not a bad idea, but the implementation is pretty ridiculous.
