So you'll also be moving Resolution from Scale Image, correct?

For what it's worth, I did a good 2 minutes of research on this topic to see 
what the other softies are doing for a "Print Size" type dialog.


I see good arguements for two 'print size/resolution' location ideas.

#1 Returning it as it was in <=2.0 because...
 - Everybody else has 'pixel scaling' and 'print size' in the same dialog, 
 - People are accustomed to Gimp also having these entries together as they've 
been that way a long time
 - one less menu entry = one less menu entry to wade through

#2 Putting it into its own menu entry (Sven's idea below) because... 
 - Having 'Print Size/resolution' settings in w/Interpolation settings really 
doesn't make sense
 - Gimp is NOT about what everybody else is doing - fock 'em

That said, I vote for idea #2, and I vote for "Print Size" for the vernacular.

I'd be curious to hear from others on this topic who use Gimp mostly for print
