I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.4.1 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

YES, for the love of all that is holy please remove this or add a lock function. Preferably this would be something you could just add to a custom workspace. There is no need for this functionality to be standard across the board because it's terrible. It was terrible on PS and it's terrible on AI - please stop it.
