Text size changing for each digit I enter

When I'm resizing small documents into larger ones, I am running into a problem where the text size is changing as I put in the new typeface size. For example, if I have an 8pt font size and want to change it to 200, when I enter two, it changes before I can enter the following zeroes, it it changes again when I enter the next digit. So illustrator is making me change the font from 8pt, to 2pt, to 20pt, and finally to 200pt. This is a huge problem when working with larger files and text effects. Please someone tell me how to turn this feature off....

Perhaps this behaviour was introduced as a well-meant preview improvement in Illustrator CC 2018. Or maybe it is just a bug.

A workaround to get the usual behaviour is to use the brand-new Properties palette to change the font sizes. It works as you expect it to work.

Pretty inconsistent.

It looks like a new behaviour compared to previous versions, but I don't know an option to prevent this.

You can mention it here:

That is strange...... I have to see if mine is doing it.  I have not heard of this issue.... but since my mom is visiting me in Germany, I have not used Illustrator in a month.  I will investigate this too!

That will work! Thanks all and thanks for your recommendation Kurt. The properties palette does the trick!
