P: Backspace Key Deletes Layers - Photoshop 22.5 - Windows

Just wanted this noted at Adobe...

 

Downloaded 22.5 this morning, and now when I go to manually enter values into a layer (ie Hue/Saturation) I cannot use the backspace key to delete the numerical value. It will first delete the layer mask, then delete the layer entirely.

 

This is a pain if you're doing lots of product photography, where you're replicating the same values over a large number of photos. I need to carefully highlight the number I want to change, then type in the value, without accidentally hitting the backspace key.

 

This may be a planned change, a quick way to delete a layer mask or layer, but it is not helpful for all users. 

 

I will do my workaround, but it's slowing down my output.

Delete Error - I do Photoshop scripting using javascript. On very recent scripted effects sold, some complain that a delete command throws an error for Windows CC version 22.5. It does not happen in Mac version CC 22.3.  Thanks for looking into this.

I have a problem.

In Adobe Photoshop, whenever I press delete while inside the transform panel values (for example to change the coordinates or size) it doesn't delete the value, it instead deletes the entire layer.

I would like this to stop.
