  • The clunkiness of that thing is known for quite a while, you can change them by setting the value then click (or spam click) the layout, it's not consistent but it works.

  • This bug has been around since the dawn of times

    The trick to deal with it is to change the height, then click back in the width box and press enter

  • Sorry, it's a bug in our UI library, and I'm not sure we can fix it. The workaround is to pin the ribbon (so it doesn't keep auto-hiding), then type in a value and press enter.
