Common Dialog Boxes lag: saves each step from Dialog Box
– MacOS Mojave 10.14.1
– AI 24.1.2
The problem appears in ALL dialog boxes in Illustrator: from transforming to changing colours.
For example I want to move my object 10px to the left. I open the Dialog Box, all the Positions are 0, Preview is on. I enter 10px, the object moves to 10 px. But, for example, that isn't enough for my artwork, and i'm entering then 12px instead of 10px, in the same dialog box.
And then the "magic" happens.
Let's say the original position of the object is 0. When I enter 10px, the position changes also to 10. But after I enter 12px, the position changes to 22! But it should have been 12! When I click "Cancel", the Object stays in position 22. It doesn't even cancel the last step. I have to do it manually then, each step i've made in Dialog Box! (See video)
It looks like that every time I use any of Dialog Boxes, as if the Illustrator writes down each step I make in Dialog Box as a separate action. Each time I click preview, the objects resets not to the actual zero property, the one before opening the Dialog Box, but the last one from Dialog Box itself. (see video)
That's makes impossible or pointless the usage of some Dialog boxes.
Have someone experienced the same problem? is there's a way to solve it?The problem occurred several month ago, i've already updated illustrator a few times.

Never seen this one! It always worked right for me (in this context).
Definitely worth team's attention.
