A little chain between the 2, like Gimp.

When we want to redimension/crop an image (eg in Writer), we can alternatively use:
-- the mouse
we just drag the image handles to get the wanted result. Pressing [Shift] along with the dragging will crop proportionaly. So far so good.
The drawback is that mouse use is never very precise. For a precise handling, we need to go to the Image dialog.
-- the Image dialog
(double-click the image)
In the Crop thumbnail we just change the percentage(s) or the dimension(s) and that's it.
Well, not if we need a proportional cropping by knowing a reference dimension.
Here we *must* change the percent only, taking care of the similar proportions ourselves to get the result. Changing a dimension value will require to look at the corresponding percentage, then get to the percent value for the other dimension and change that percentage proportionaly. Doh. Also, I'm not sure the percent value to be an exact calculation from a dimension value as percentages never seem to display any decimals.
ISTM that a "Proportional" checkbox would be welcome in the dialog in order to bypass those multiple steps and allow a simple way of changing dimensions proportionaly. That checkbox state should be recorded.
This has annoyed me since the very beginning when I got to use OOo 1.1. Would the change be a big deal?
Thanks for your attention,
