Yes, looks OK. Though note that this UI has been replaced in the new toolbar (0.86 and up) by individual icons.

I like it. Watch the capitalisation of "Whole Page", perhaps the term you are after is "Page height", but I might not understand how you have actually coded that specific choice. The previous UI allowed someone to choose an unusual scaling value, say 88%, so I guess the question is if that is a feature folks are happy loosing. In my experience, unusual scaling values were to try and get to a good "Page width" setting manually, so would not be such a loss.
