Great question, still no answer.

Hello everyone.
I have a really good question that might improve the speed of work to a lot of people. There is a good feature in Photoshop that allows you to change the opacity to the current layer just by pressing the numbers on the keyboard.
3 - changes opacity to 30%
5 - changes opacity to 50%
ect.

Is there a way that we can make AE to change the values of the current option we've selected. For example:

I push S for scale and click 5 for 50% scale
or
I push T for opacity and click 7 for 70% opacity

Help would be really appriciated.

This does not exist in AE as a feature currently. You could suggest it to the AE team though. The old feature request site seems to be gone, perhaps someone else knows where to head for this sort of thing... Todd? :)

The Bug/Feature URL seems to be broken. I believe that this is temporary. Here's the link though - https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
