shift does not create square artboard, but uses previous proportions
illustrator 2020 - 24.2.3
mac os catalina 10.15.6
in the newest version of illustrator, creating a new artboard while pressing shift just creates an artboard at the same dimensions as the previous one, rather than as a square. having to take the extra steps to manually type in exact square dimensions is a real time suck when i have to create many different sizes on one document. there should be a way to get that old setting back!

No idea why this isn't getting more attention.
