It spawns over two columns, could make it half of the size. But why? Users
enter page numbers there, potentially long like "1,3-5,7,9,13,122,125-187,200"

> bad idea to use vertical and horizontal scrollbars in this dialog

Scrollbars show up automatically (after setting pages per sheet to custom as
Daniel commented); I cannot give more vertical room to prevent the horizontal
scrollbar but users can resize the dialog.

Didn't touch the lower part. And we cannot have a grid that spawns over frames
nor it's (easily) possible to define a common width. But yes, also thought
about a solution here.

I changed the frame content to a simple 3x10 grid.

The question is more if we really want to have that many radio buttons. The
dropdown has an advantage. (I vote for radio buttons)
