Scale tool pop-up not working?
I am trying to scale something to a specific size (X pixels by X pixels).

I've been using gimp for years and only yesterday upgraded to the latest version, and a lot of things are different, so sorry for the "newbie" question even though I'm not new to gimp. What I am used to is that when you select the scale tool and click on the object/layer you want to scale, a pop-up dialog opens, with options such as lock aspect ratio, but most importantly a box where you can type specifically how many pixels high or wide you want to scale the selected object to.

In the new version I'm using, there is nothing like this and no pop up whatsoever. The only options under the toolbox are to lock aspect (shift) which does not help me. I need to scale it to a specific number of pixels, and I cannot do this by dragging and guessing, it's impossible.

Please could someone tell me how I do this in the new version. Example, I need the object selected to be exactly 800 pixels in width. How do I scale it to this specific width. I can't figure it out in this new interface at all.
