Disable "hover scrolling to change numeric value in input fields"! At least an option to do so
it's super maddening and frustrating. I often have to use trackpad to do work and this activates so easily. Please provide an option to turn this off. Thanks

I want to throw my "magic" mouse out the window because of this, but really the software should provide a solution.
It's pretty annoying key-nudging that oh-so-perfect value for a width in my Transform palette and then as I quickly roll the mouse away to do the next thing I find my object just suddenly zooming uncontrollably to god knows what new number. And since I didn't necessarily eyeball the value before I left the filed it's disconcerting that I just lost it. Definitely takes me out of the design flow.
(I've used Illustrator since it was called Illustrator 88, and it seems that only very recently have bugs like this appeared which throw such input-messes into the product... please prove me wrong Adobe Team!)
Stop forcing users to use things they don't like. All new "features" should have a disable option. This is not rocket science.
Absolutely. The developers must not use a Magic Mouse or they would have never left this feature as-is.
It seems to respond to both left/right and up/down scrolling. Even slightly rolling your finger as you try and click using a Magic Mouse erroneously triggers it. Even more frustrating is that it seems to happen even when you're only hovering over the up/down buttons, not even the text input field.
I used to use Magic Prefs to solve this issue but it is no longer supported.

I can very much second this. Also very annoying with magic mouse, and especially annoying because illustrator doesn't consider the scroll as 1 action, so if i accidentally scroll over the stroke value i need to undo several times to go back to the original value.
Personally, I would also like to just be able to turn this feature off. It's not precise/smooth enough to be helpful in my mac and it's too easy to trigger unintentionally.
