Would that be a user experience bug?

What would be a good reason to prevent the user from doing a reasonable action like this?

If the size is explicitly set, why not let it remain so?

I expect this was done to prevent the case where someone:
1. chooses a graphic tool from the Tools palette
2. clicks to start dragging out the graphic
3. accidentally double-clicks instead and ends the graphic, resulting in an unintentionally-tiny graphic

It also lets you click once with a graphic tool to create a default-size graphic at that spot.

Perhaps newGraphic could test what tool is chosen, and change the size only if the tool is "graphic".
