How do I get the layer opacity to work if there is a texxture plugged into the Roughness or Metal channel?

1. I created a fill layer.

2. Plugged a texture intoo the Metal channel: turned off all the other channels.

3. In the Fill layer Opacity control, tried to adjust the Opacity, but nothing happens.

You are adjusting the opacity for the base color channel which is turned off. At the top of the layers panel select the Metal channel.
