    Okay, but it is still ugly and it is still non-obvious.

    Having the units as part of the text in the text box rather than as a
    seperate drop down menu is not particularly nice.

    Clicking into the text box should take the focus off the OK button, but it
    does not, so you cannot hit return and see the updated Height and width
    values (useful when you are using the fixed ratio) without reopening the

    See the first/front tab of the Insert Image dialog in Mozilla Composer
    which is much more to my liking.
