Short description of error
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejHaQIpryns
When the Percent amount type is selected in the bevel tool/modifier it changes value range from 0-1 to 0-100 making it pretty uncomfortable to enter without typing the exact number.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Use bevel tool or modifier and change the amount type to percent.

Adam Pasek (Llamarider) renamed this task from Bevel Amount Type: Percent - too big number to comfortably enter it by mouse movement to Bevel Amount Type: Percent - number too big to comfortably enter it by mouse movement.

This is also a problem for the units - we can’t make this value either a % or distance (m) because the same value is used for both distance and percentage.

Splitting up this property would solve both issues.

@Howard Trickey (howardt)

I will fix this by splitting, which will also make it possible to do units right (have already done this splitting in the modifier).

I am not sure whether I did anything in particular to fix the mouse sensitivity to percent, but it seems fine to me. Maybe this also had to do with the scale issue that my commit did fix. If the original reporter of this bug thinks it is still not ok for percent, please give more details (a .blend, and details about what you did -- I'm assuming adjusting by mouse movement, but maybe that was a wrong assumption).
