Photoshop: Ability to toggle Fullscreen with "F" and use keypad for opacity whilst transform tool is active.

I'm old school. I don't use tabs.

My windows are often floating and I toggle between the various fullscreen modes with the F key. There are countless times where I've neglected to toggle fullscreen, go to transform something and realise the transform handles are outside my canvas and I can see of select them.

So I cancel, hit F a couple of times and start transforming again.

It would be great to be able to toggle fullscreen with 'F' after I've activated the transform tool. It would also be great if I could alter the layer opacity of the active transform using the numeric keys just like you can with a layer selected. So hit 5 for 50%.

It's not like the numeric keys are reserved for any other function unless I've highlighted a transform field in the options bar.

And I believe the F key used to work as mentioned above but this was a feature that was lost during the Carbon to Cocoa saga.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried F and setting the opacity using keyboard shortcuts while in transform mode with some older versions of Photoshop (CS3, etc) and it didn't work in those versions either. I don't think this was ever enabled (even prior to CS5 - Carbon to Cocoa version).
