Much effort was expended in making the GUI. The GUI should
be functional, convenient and intuitive for the average user.

The average user may not discover that the up/down arrow
keys should be used if right/left arrows are depicted.

Worse, the average user may press the up/down arrows and
get the height to change in the wrong direction, then wonder
what the heck just happened.

Ugly up/down arrows are the perfect addition to the rustic menu.
