Hey,

After updating to 2019, I go to rotate an object in illustrator, type R-Enter as usual, and try to type in the degree of rotation. Instead of just being able to type the degree right away, I have to highlight the existing text before I can type in what I want. It's a little thing that's causing a lot of frustration. Any suggestions for how I can fix this?

For reference, a similar action would be typing S-Enter for scaling an object, and then typing in the percentage you want to scale the object by. This function still works...the existing text is already highlighted, so you can just type in your scale without needing to highlight it yourself. I don't understand why they changed it for rotation.

Thanks!

Hello,

For me this is one of the most annoying change, because I do a very technical job and I use this tool a lot. As I observed the problem is that when you press R - Enter to bring up the dialog box, it highlights the round dialer instead of the input field and this is very very annoying. Since not everyone is a beginner to work mostly from mouse and use the keyboard for minimum input.

However you can TAB key back an forth until the angle input filed activates. Which by the way is a terrible workaround.
