Bug Description

More than a bug is a proposal for improvement.
I also use other schematics (PADS) in the workplace and I find particularly boring to remember the previously defined global labels especially if they are on different sheets.
Pads simply allows you to choose between the already defined labels or insert one directly into a combo widget. To be honest, at the end PADS asks for confirmation if you really want to combine the two nets but you could neglect the thing for the moment since at present kicad ignores the thing ...

Another strange thing is that in "size" the widget expects a float but then the following label specifies H(mm) x W(mm) which is not accepted.
Finally if you resize the dialog vertically the labet "Text:" loses alignment with the entry widget.

I know I'm a "rompiscatole" :-)
