Hello, I know that it is not exactly what you are asking for, but did you know that Photoshop has something that Illustrator does not have: scrubby sliders: hold CTRL(PC)/CMD(Mac) as you hover the numerical field, and you can drag to change the numbers. Hold Shift for larger and Alt for finer increments.  You can also hover the title of the numerical field, and the mouse cursor changes, indicating that you can scrub left and right.

Hello, I know that it is not exactly what you are asking for, but did you know that Photoshop has something that Illustrator does not have: scrubby sliders: hold CTRL(PC)/CMD(Mac) as you hover the numerical field, and you can drag to change the numbers.

Hold Shift for larger and Alt for finer increments. 

You can also hover the title of the numerical field, and the mouse cursor changes, indicating that you can scrub left and right.

 

Also, if you click on the numerical field, you can use the up or down arrow on your KB to change the numbers, Shift for larger increments.

 

As an alternative, you can also use the mouse wheel to change the value after clicking. Again shift for larger changes.

 

If you enter a value with the keyboard, you can also Shift+enter to apply, but keep the field active, in order to experiment.

 

You can also use basic math on the numerical fields.

 

I hope this helps...
