in my experience, joining the chain (for the free scale) does the right 
thing, so you don't need to copy paste the values.

if it is not correct in every case, i guess that the code could easily 
be changed in a way that always (for this use case) does the right thing.
except if a different behavior is to be expected for other use cases... 
no idea...

if the chain works then the workflow is:

- load image
- autofit
- non proportional
- free scale
- chain

if the frame is by default (from the configuration, by copy pasting, or 
from the scrapbook) already defined as fitting non proportionally, this 
seems to be an efficient enough workflow... the problem being that it is 
a bit hard to discover...

question from my side: does chaining the free scale always do the right
