Hello,

After updating to Photoshop 21.2.0 (June 2020 release), on a Mac, running 10.14.6, I've encountered a bug toggling between a layer mask and its layer using keyboard shortcuts (Command + \ and Command + ~).

After clicking CMD + \ , I am taken to the layer mask, as per usual, but, now it also goes into overlay mode. I have to click \ to get out of overlay mode.

This happens on all three Macs, I've used, all on 10.14.6.

Thanks, in advance, for checking into this.

I suspect you're seeing this: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/photoshop-21-2-moving-layer-leaves-shadow-ima...

if you disable Legacy Compositing, does it work correctly?

Jeffrey, 

Thanks for responding. Unfortunately, that did not help this issue. It still goes to rubylith mode when I toggle to the mask by using the shortcut, CMD + \ .

Can you make a screen recording of what you're seeing?
