Photoshop 2019: Issue with placing, editing and transforming Smart Objects

Just to note, i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
Also, these bugs are on windows.

1) Occasionally (every 10th or so time) when opening a smart AI object from the layers panel, if illustrator is open full screen, it then opens the smart object but sets illustrator to be a small window. See fig.1


2) Occasionally when i'm using the marquee to cut or using the transform tool, once i hit enter, about 15px from the left and 13px from the top turn transparent.- see fig.2 This also happens on smart objects if i save it, then go back to the original document. 
to fix this, all i need to do is move the layer (i normally just move it 1px up, then down. - see fig.3



Overall though, i actually quite like the changes to 2019, but it would have been nice for the transform tool to have some consistency for everything... 

shapes: transform DOESN'T keep aspect unless holding shift.
shapes in folder: transform DOES keep aspect without holding shift.

This i understand is that you are transforming the folder, which has the rule assigned too it, however i cant see a reason as to why a shape wouldn't have the same rules? my mum always told me i couldn't have a rule for my brother and a different rule for me... and my brother is a shape!
