too hard to change text size
it's too hard to change text size in the small boxes in the character window. Hard to select all the content. Hard to select the number part only. And both of these are the only way to make it work. Please just change behavior so that clicking in the box selects all the content.
Illustrator offers two ways for accessing fields:
1. Clicking the caption of a field selects all the content in that field.
2. Clicking the field itself sets the cursor in the exact location of the click.
So anyone can choose the behaviour they prefer.

Thank you! I didn't realize that. That's going to be really helpful. I appreciate you posting to let me know!
Hetal, you don't have to do it.
If you click a caption of a field instead, Illustrator selects all the content in that field. So you can choose which behaviour you need (different users prefer different approaches to that).
Please, try this and comment back if it works for you.
