Create a New Layer Without a Dialog
Pressing Command-Shift-N ( PC: Ctrl-Shift-N ) creates a new layer but it brings up the New Layer dialog so you can name it. Personally, I find it kind of annoying and it's not a lot faster for me than just clicking the new layer icon. However, if you throw the Option ( PC: Alt ) key into the mix, Command-Shift Option-N ( PC: Ctrl-Shift-Option-N ), then it'll bypass the new layer dialog and just create a new blank layer in the Layers panel.
Thanks for that tip. every little bit helps.
Awesome tip! 😀
I thought I was just obsessive for wanting a feature like this, but it does exist.
