Bug Description

can we skip the trailing zeros ?

example 0,300

want to change this value you need to delete all the trailing zeros first (2 of them)

its this way in all possible menus and situation, and if you work a lot with the tool it eventually becomes a burden.

Or we could uniformly implement the OSX UI paradigm which selects all when tabbing to text boxes....

@Seth, I'm not sure which way you're thinking of going here, but if you do want to implement the Mac-select-all algorithm you can just remove the conditional compilation lines around the selectAllInTextCtrls() call in DIALOG_SHIM::OnPaint().

In case of change 0.300 to 0.350

What solution gives less keystrokes?

@Jeff- Personally, I like both: select all text and drop extra zeros.

Sounds good to me.
