Press Cmd or Ctrl 2 and let me know if that worked.  Hold down the Ctrl key and press 2 for example.

Cmd = Mac

Ctrl   = PC

You are brilliant!  Pressing Cmd + 2 worked.  I don't know what I hit but it didn't show up in my history.  Thank you!!!

Thanks to both of you, Milisaa93350435 and Gener7. Even though it was a differnt problem than yours, it was Gener7's initail response that was exactly what I needed.  Accidently stroking key-commands you don't mean to can be a real bummer... Don't be embarresed, you saved my day! (:

Okay so I had the same problem and ctrl2 didn't work. Indeed it was in this menu that i noticed the issue, my document idkhow turned greyscale, and by clicking on rgb, simply it reapplied color. It open a menu saying "would u flatten the image before ?" I personnaly applied, "no" and it did'nt change anything on my work. If that could help 🙂
