I always had problems with this too. I don't remember any way other
than crash-and-burn (download and test). Getting stuff to fit in
buttons was especially a pain, even worse when you tried to
internationalize things, every language seems to use phrases that are
longer than english.

So, no, use preview for a hand drawn facsimile and then start
counting pixels (or use the ruler app) to get sizes and placement down.
