Can I propose 2 more options....

1) Pop up dialogue is activated by hotkey (and perhaps on screen widget) - 
this approach is used quite successfully in several 3D applications. Usual Tab 
or N "numeric" is used.

2) Draw options on canvas - perhaps with hotkey/widget to show hide these 
additional options.... This has the additional advantage of not obscuring the 
picture while adding numerical input. 

I can do some mockups if that makes any of this clearer.

Oh, get ahold of yourself.  Nobody's proposing that we parse English.
