Illustrator v24.0 on macOS 10.15.1: rotate-panel has changed to the bad side
The rotate-tool had the numeric angle-input activated till v23. now in v24, this field has to be selected manually, which costs me a lot of time. Please change this back. To me this bad for efficiency.
My workflow before:
- select path
- press command-R
- enter angle
- press enter
I can do this blind and very fast.
My workflow now means to manually select the field for entering the rotating angle, which is very annoying ! It takes much more time to do this now.
We have the fix available in the latest release. Please update Illustrator using Adobe Creative Cloud application to the latest build for version Illustrator CC 24.0.1
Please refer to our knowledge base FAQ – https://illustrator.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1844590 if you face difficulty in update.
Or get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html
Thank you. Hit the update button, no update available, still build 24.0

I'm the OP for this bug posted over a year ago now. When I saw this revisit post I a) swore out loud, and b) made a note to not upgrade Illustrator from 23.1 until this was resolved.
I'm not interested in how you folks gave up ground on this issue, but please address this ASAP. That the same bug is back makes it so much worse the second time.
Thank you in advance - just keep in mind there are a bunch of us closely watching the progress on this one.
Also clicking the Rotate Angle name in the Transform Effect stopped selecting the Angle field.
focus on basic testing and not on ipad
Why Adobe, why do you have to break this every MAX!

1. Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1
2. Invoking the Rotate tool palette
3. Cursor focus in the angle text input box
4. Cursor focus is on the rotation angle icon (then moves to the Preview checkbox when hitting TAB)
