We have improved the working experience of Free Distort tool. Now the bounding box will not reset! This functionality now is available in our latest release build – 24.1.1 for Win and 24.1 for Mac which is available worldwide now.
What’s new in 24.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

Thank you for all the feedback

Further to this, modelling the free distort tool in Illustrator after the one in Photoshop would be a great improvement. Being able to distort your actual object, at size, on the artboard versus a tiny approximation in a dialog box would make it far more accurate and usable.
I've been hoping this would be improved for many Illustrator updates - here's hoping it's addressed soon. Thank you.
