I pulled the slider from the zoom slider for the mockup but was able to grab

The slider isnt small in the new mockup. Well about longer lengths of the word
'transparency' in different languages, it would adjust according to the width
of the string, just like it does now with the percentage field.

A number of times, the transparency label is on a different line than the
percentage field (e.g. Graphic section when you click on an image), so there
isnt a problem there. :D
