Scaling Issue in large canvas Illustrator 24.2.1
When designing in the large canvas mode (anything larger than 227.5416 inches) the scaling does not work properly in the transform panel. For instance, if I start a document off making the canvas 240" x 240" and I draw a rectangle that is 12" x 12" and open the transform panel and enter 200% in the width or height field, it does not scale it up to 200%. It scales it down. However, if I am in the normal canvas mode (227" x 227") the scaling works correctly. This is an issue in Illustrator 24.2.1 using macbook pro with macOS Catalina 10.15.5. But I am able to duplicate this issue on a PC as well running Windows 10 Pro.

This issue still exists in 24.2.3.
In large canvas mode, scaling via the Transform panel by typing a percentage such as 200%, scales the selected objects to 20% (1/10 of the expected result). Someone just needs to move a decimal over in the code, I think!
