Default button size: This sets the default width and height (in pixels) of buttons created by dragging large images, titles, and menus onto a menu background in the Preview window.
Maintain aspect ratio: If this checkbox is selected, a change to one of the Default button size dimensions automatically changes the other dimension to maintain the aspect ratio.
