If scale option for a figure is set, \externalfigure does not honor the

\externalfigure[cow][width=1cm, height=3cm, scale=750]

gives a figure which has the usual aspect ratio.

I know that settings scale=... along with width and height does not make
sense. But, in one of my project, I set


as that makes sense for most of the figures, and if I try to use

\externalfigure[cow][width=1cm, height=3cm]

then the aspect ratio of the figures does not change.

Not sure if this should be classified as a bug, but I am posting it here
in case anyone else encounters the same issue and needs to know how to
override this behavior:

\externalfigure[cow][width=1cm, height=3cm, scale=]

if needed you can use an abstraction:


\defineexternalfigure[another] [scale=500]



I actually use these abstractions, but with the default value also set. That's the whole point of having the defaults, right? So, my current solution is:

\setupexternalfigures[scale=750, factor=max, maxwidth=\textwidth, 

    [width=0.55\paperwidth, height=0.33\paperwidth, scale=, factor=]

Around five months ago, I did not need to reset scale and factor.
