I have been very comfortable with using the setup I get with the cnc wizard. However it would be helpful to me if there was a way of  increasing the screen size of some of the control buttons such as; xyz axis, homeall, touch off ets.  If there is a straight forward way to do this I would like to learn it.  Don't want to create major changes as I am quite satisfied the format functions.
Just upgraded to Wheezy V 2.8

I am going to assume that you are not the sort of monster who would consider running an LCD display at anything other than native resolution?

In which case I would guess that button sizes are set somewhere in axis.tcl, but I am too unfamilar with Tcl to be able to find where.

You might look at Gaxis, which is superficially similar to Axis but defined by a more editable GUI system.

In case you want to optimize it for a touch screen, I would recommend to use linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gui/gmoccapy.html

Or you can get some inspiration from this thread: forum.linuxcnc.org/21-axis/40659-axis-2-...ersion-of-old-friend

Hey, resizing the buttons is not very complicated. Have a read through these axis documents, they describe how it can be done. the example provided is for the toolbar buttons, but it can be done with the other buttons as well. The hardest part is at first when you are trying to figure out what button is what.

linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/gui/axis.html#_user_command_file

You can find all the button names within this file, but I dont have it all labeled as to which ones are buttons. I will have to check when I am home from vacation, and I can post a clearer explanation, if you are still having issues.
