Increasing the Silhouette Studio Tool Icon Size

Did you know there's a way to increase the size of the tool bar icons in Silhouette Studio? There totally is and it's really simple to do. There are so many icons it can sometimes by tough to see, especially if you're working on a smaller monitor.  Increasing the size of the icons, therefore, can be really helpful. 
To do so, open up Silhouette Studio.

Click on the little blue gear in the bottom right corner of the Silhouette Studio window. This opens up a bunch of preferences.

When the window opens on the right side, click 'Display'.

About half way down the window, you'll see a bar called Button Size.  Move the bar to the right or left to either increase or decrease the size of the tool icons.

Be sure to click "Apply" to save the changes.

Be aware that if you pick the largest option or the next to largest button size, some of the buttons may be hidden on your tool bar. You can easily access them by clicking the arrow at the end (or bottom) of the tool bar.

And here's what the smallest button size looks like.

I like to keep my tool bar buttons as large as possible while still being able to see all of the buttons at one time.  On my laptop monitor that's on the third tick on the Button Size tool bar.
