not permanently, since this will be gone with every new version of LC.

But why not create a plug-in? Nothing easier that that:
Create a stack
Add a pulldown menu (or whtever menu-button you like)
Put this into the menuitems (text of button)
100,100
200,200
400,400
etc. for all wanted sizes, you get the picture

And this is the script for that menubutton:

on menupick which
set the width of the templatestack to item 1 of which
set the height of the templatestack to item 2 of which

##set the loc of the templatestack to the screenloc

## Set some important props first:
set the alwaysbuffer of the templatestack to TRUE
set the destroystack of the templatestack to TRUE
set the destroywindow of the templatestack to TRUE
set the resizable of the templatestack to TRUE
create stack

## Always clean up!
reset the templatestack
end menupick

Put it into you LC plugin folder and that's it! :-)
