I am fairly sure that this issues is know to the engineers but felt that another example could not hurt. This involves the
Effects > 3D and Materials > Rotate. Attached is a video showing a typical response to an effort to set the rotation in the 3D and Materials window. Entering an value into an axis box results in the window shutting down and de-selecting the target object. Nothing to date has been able to overcome this problem. I can sometimes manually drag an axis but find it very difficult to control. Please do not respond to this post; hopefully someone can send it off the Adobe powers that be. Been using Illustrator since 1988 version 3 running on a NeXT Cube.
