While manually entering the values for positioning, you cannot enter decimal values.
Height and Width: You can resize an element by dragging the corner handles of the element. Alternatively, you can enter the size of the element on the size fields.

Position: Position refers to the position of the button element on the workspace. Pinning an element to an edge instructs that element to move as the edge itself moves. When an element is pinned to non-opposing edges the distance of the element from those edges remains fixed or proportional.
You can define the position of the element as Float or Fixed.
Float: When selected, the position of the element on the workspace is fixed such that when the workspace is increased or decreased, the element is placed proportionately. For example, in a 1000px wide workspace if an element is placed at 200px from the left edge, then in a 2000 px wide workspace the element will be placed 400px away from the left edge.
Fixed: When selected, the position of the element is fixed from the edges irrespective of the size of the workspace. For example, if an element is pinned 10 pixels away from the top and the left edge, as the workspace size changes, the position of the element will still be 10 pixels away from the top and the left edge. ): When selected, the position of the element on the workspace is fixed such that when the workspace is increased or decreased, the element is placed proportionately.

Dimension refers to the fluidity or the fixity of the element container. You can control the resizing aspect of any element by using the two arrows in the Dimension section. When the size of the document changes, the width and height of the element container also changes.

To enable resizing the height of the element, click the up-down arrow.
To enable resizing the width of the element, click the left-right arrow.
