While using Adobe Illustrator, if I try to make a circle using the Ellipse tool, the resulting shape is an ellipse.
If I change the W coordinate to 1.00 inch, the H coordinate automatically changes to 0.98 inches, and this happens with any other shape I try to create; this way I cannot create the perfect shapes I need.
Can anyone help me solve this issue, please?

Click where you want the top-left corner of the ellipse’s bounding box to be. Specify a width and height for the ellipse, and click OK.
To create a circle, hold down the Shift key while dragging, or if you are specifying dimensions, once you’ve entered a Width value you can click on the word Height to copy that value into the Height box.
