The obvious answer is that I didn't know you could, but anyway, I still 
prefer a dialog that fits the screen - for one thing, I'm rarely using 
anything but the touchpad, so it's a 2-finger+thumb operation. Another 
problematic thing has become the enormity of the Properties palette for 
any practical use, but I don't see a solution in making it incredibly 
big and then Alt-clicking on it.
