Photoshop 22.5 - Backspace Key Deletes Layers - 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.

Appears to be Windows specific issue. I've asked engineering to take a look!

I am using the search button for brushes and every time I hit backspace, it deletes my layers. I believe this is a bug that needs to be fix

Same. Incredibly frustrating. Has slowed my workflow considerably.

It happens on every text input I've tried in the interface (positions, sizes, etc).

I work a lot with transforms and shapes  and it has completely broken my workflow on Windows.

I came here to cry about this - it's awful, really an impediment to efficiency

Adding to the frustration. It's beyond irritating when messing with Opacity and suddenly, everything disappears.

Also wanna put my hand up that I hate this issue. It affects any text input on the interface and it's unbelievably frustrating.
