Move objects always moves downwards in y direction, behaves fine in x
Selecting an object and hitting ENTER brings up the 'Move' dialog and, for a while now, negative values moved things up and positive values moved things down the y axis. Fair enough, we all got used to it. As of today, things behave differently and everything is always moved up, unless I adjust the angle in the two entry fields below. Please see attached GIF.
I'm still not used to it and have to think everytime I move something because it's opposite of what I did in Illustrator for years. We have our production using an older version of Illustrator and the vertical move is opposite of what I used every day so it gets confusing when I have to help them. On any other Y axis in the world, positive is up, negative is down.

A positive number in the Vertical edit field should move the object up.
Why does a negative value for a Y axis coordinate result in a positive move?
Just installed 24.01 and a positive value in the Vertical field (in Move dialog) still moves the object down (negative direction on Y axis).
In CS4, Move behaves as expected.

Just to clarify: I don't care about the change that positive values in y direction move things down (in any CAD it's the opposite). The bug I'm seeing is that *regardless of what I enter*, objects always move UP. Only when I use the direction/degree inputs can I control where objects go.
Not everyone got used to it :(
