    There are certain default behaviors that one becomes used to when using a computer and Adobe appears to have completely disregarded this with respect to manually entering values! Please fix this serious bug.

    When clicking on any modifiable value field, a single click should select the entire contents of the field by default. If I click on the width field in the Illustrator top bar, I should be able to simply type a width and hit tab or enter to apply. THIS IS NOT HOW IT WORKS.

    If I see that my width is only off by a small amount that is easily stepped, I should be able to use the up and down arrows (either in the field or on the keyboard) to increment or decrement my value by the next closest whole number in either direction. THIS WORKS CORRECTLY, but only by automatically selecting the entire value THE WAY IT SHOULD WHENEVER YOU CLICK A FIELD VALUE.

    If I click a field value and realize that I want to just change the last two numbers or perhaps the current units, I SHOULD CLICK THE FIELD A SECOND TIME WHERE I WANT TO INSERT MY CURSOR AND THE CURSOR SHOULD GO THERE, DESELECTING THE VALUE. Clicking and Dragging across a value should operate in this same way, CLICKHOLD where you want to insert the cursor and drag to SELECT THE VALUE TO CHANGE. This makes sense because the CLICK-HOLD action is really CLICK CLICK-DRAG.

    Currently, I click a field value and think that I can quickly change the value to 50px, so I type 50px and press ENTER (only to get an error that 1050px pt is not a valid value--a total bust to my workflow. So I click the field again and have to use CTRL-A to select the entire contents of the field in order to type the new value. THIS SHOULD BE BY DEFAULT.

    CLICKING A FIELD, like tabbing into the field, SELECTS THE ENTIRE CONTENTS. CLICKING A SECOND TIME PLACES THE CURSOR AND DESELECTS CONTENT. CLICK AND HOLD OR CLICK+DRAG SHOULD OPERATE LIKE DOUBLECLICK

    This is common sense and Adobe is the only software package on the market that handles this in this peculiar way. Please fix it.

    P.S. And here's the deal: when I enter a value and press tab, if I haven't explicitly declared units, use the previously assigned units. Don't complain that I didn't have the right units. I can't tell you how many times I have entered 50% in the width field just to be told that 2150%80px is not a valid entry.

    P.P.S. It is terribly inappropriate and completely unhelpful to click an item and be told that it is 100% wide....That makes no sense. Percentages are always relative in context. If you say it's 100% wide, you have to say relative to what? It's original size? the window size? It's parent size? Width and heights should not be presented in % by default. Always use the current units (px, cm, mm, etc). and if you wan to add a "transformed" width or height (to the TRANSFORM PANEL), you need a Context field that indicates what the percentage is applied to. This would be great if you wanted to make a shape with 4 identical columns...you would draw the parent shape, then enter isolation mode to add 4 columns, each of which was 25% wide 100% tall given the context of their PARENT. THen later, when the item is broken apart, the height and width are only available in the current preferred units, not %.

    If I can downgrade to the previous version, I could show you in a heartbeat. Apparently in the latest version they have removed all functionality that lets you modify a selected element without having to change tools.

    Up until this very last update, when you selected an item, the bounding box would be displayed. Clicking on any of the bounding box handles would allow you to transform the size. Clicking in the middle would allow you to drag the element to reposition and clicking close to the handles would change the pointer to the rotate pointer, allowing you to rotate the element.

    Now, that is gone entirely. There is no way to transform the element, especially rotate the element when you just have it selected with either arrow tool. Now, you have to select the transform tool to apply any changes.

    And what is frustrating about the transform tool is that you can't select a new element easily. You have to use keyboard modifiers to select a new element or an additional element if the transform tool is selected.

    It's a HUGE change to the way Illustrator has worked for the last, what 20 years? Sure, I can get used to it, but it sucks.

    I believe that this is because they are unable to compensate for Windows 11 OS being scaled to 175% on a large 4k monitor. When I set the scaling to 100%, it used to work as expected. It was only when I increased the scaling so I could actually read the content on a 39" 4K monitor that the problem presented itself. This is a terrible approach to solving the problem.

    I think this may have to do with screen magnification on my PC. I often can't grab a handlebar or a point on a path. Often, when trying to change the width of height of something, the cursor changes to indicate width or height, but the item rotates instead. The latest version eliminated all of these abilities without the transform tool active--which sucks. I think it is because I have a 38" curved monitor that I have to run at 175% to read the content on it. I don't think Illustrator has got that part figured out yet.

    Shees, every time I said cursor, I meant pointer. That's rough.

    Regardless, reading through the comments made be realize something. It has to do with Windows Magnification. I am using a 4k Ultra Wide monitor at 200% magnification. This is making the area that activates the rotate feature bigger than it should be. Somehow, they didn't compensate for the magnification in Windows.

    When I drag Illustrator to a different monitor, the problem goes away.

    This is most likely related to the other bug report I posted about a different context. It seems that the rotate controls are being entirely too aggressive when selecting an object. I often have to zoom way in or out to get the damned rotate controls to quit popping up so I can even move an element. We should be able to deselect these controls from popping up in the options. I almost never use them and they get in the way more than they help.
