Incorrect size for a group with an ellipse
I have a number of 5mm ellipse selected - these should have a complete height of 65mm when selected. But illustrator has ignored the white space between, giving a height 10mm less than it should be!
Seems to be fixed in the latest release. Please check if it is and comment back if it does not.

Dimensions of object are incorrect when more than one object is selected in new update 25.4.1 (Mac OSX running latest version of Catalina.)
See below square is 600mmx600mm, when I then paste a complex group of objects and I select the outer circle it is 600x600mm. When I then go to select 2 or more of the circles the height goes loopy.
This issue actually was happening in 2019 but then got fixed. Now it's back again. Please fix it so it never comes back again.
When I draw a basic circle using the ellipse tool (l) - everything is fine.
However, when you duplicate or rotate this object multiple times, the selected group maintains the scale properties of the originally drawn circle - and not the size of the collective group. The height is reporting that my shape's properties are HALF of what its actual width is visually.
This is has never been issue for the 14+ years that I've been using Illustrator.
macOS10.15.6 Illustrator ver.25.2.3
Drawing two circles and moving them apart there are no problems, they show the correct overall size. However as soon as I rotate them 90* it shows the distance between them rather than the actual outside dimensions.
Yes, I could make them a compund path or change them from a shape, but it is still a glitch nonetheless.

Im seeing same issue on Windows 2020. I have a group made of outlined text items and a circle. When i make a new group of the selection, it shows the height and width of that text and not the circle?
Notice how the height is the same in both selections, thats clearly a bug
Its must be something in this circle shape, when i recreate the circle and do the same it does work properly. The circle by itself acts like normal, no weird behavior. Its still a live shape and i can edit without issues. Only when i select a group together with this first circle the height and width are not correct as seen in the images
Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7
Overall sizes given in the Transform panel are incorrect if multiple ellipses are selected, depending on the rotation of the ellipses.
In the attached screenshot all groups of ellipses should be 400x600mm overall size, however, 2 of the rotated groups give an incorrect dimension for the overall height, yet the only difference is the rotation of the shapes.
I can’t reproduce it in Ai2020 on Windows. Can you share the file with these? What version are you using, what OS?
