in Illustrator 24.2 the rotate tool often seems to default back to random numbers now instead of to the last used or something that might make sense (eg 90). eg 93.24
It seems to be doing it in a few places now eg the reflect tool does it sometimes too ie when I go in to use it it'll have a random angle selected even if I've just been using horizontal or vertical beforehand.
I can't seem to consistently reproduce it - it seems to randomly come and go even within the same file and the same session (which to my mind makes absolutely no sense whatsoever!).
I guess its at least consistent in its inconsistency! :-)
No, not really - it seems kind of random. I just tried it and it didn't do it, so its kind of weird. The process I almost always do is...
Double click rotate tool in toolbox
Enter value or use what's there (and used to always be the last used)
I wouldn't care quite so much if it defaulted to say 90 because that would at least occasionally be useful but the chances of me wanting it to be a completely random and non-sensical value that I haven't used for anything is well... nil

I notice this when I use Scale tool... I think they are related.
Can you provide steps that 100% reproduce that bug for you?
