Before the last update I used to be able to draw a square or ellipse then type the location I wanted to place it, X or Y. Now that is gone. Now I have to open another box "TRANSFORM" in order to place the shape exactly where I wanted it. Very inconvenient. If I at least had the ability to dock that box at the top it would make life much easier. It has been at the top for as long as I can remember. I often use this like a CAD software when I draw. The last update made using Illustrator very inconvenient.
Windows 10, Illustrator 2020
It's still there. It's jus they added a few more items to the dock so it's compressing the transform info. To get that back look for 3 dots with 3 lines on the very far right of the dock (top right of Illustrator). Click on that and then uncheck any dock items you don't need and the transform boxes should unexpand so you can see the x and y fields again.
