Bizarre shape tool

Is anyone else having trouble with the shape tool? I can only jump from with to height by tab the first time I open the program. After that, I have to access both fields manually by clicking into them. That’s not practical and doesn’t seem intentional to me. A bug?

Yup, happens to me too.

This is an old bug that I could not figure out yet. I’ll keep trying.

Would be great, thanks Georg!
