CTRL L function not working correctly

Recommended Posts

Hello!  Out of nowhere, when I press CTRL L, my levels layer comes up like this?  This weird box pops up on my screen instead of a new levels layer being added.  What setting have I screwed up?  When I go up and manually select a levels adjustment layer, it adds it to my layers panel just like normal.  It is only when I press ctrl L that it does this weird box thing.  Please help!  This is ruining my workflow!

What you've shown here is the natural behaviour of Photoshop.  At some point in the past you must have gone to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts to customise the Ctrl L shortcut to create a layer; and now it's been lost.  Photoshop always loses settings occasionally.

So yeah, you'll need to go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts and do it again.
