How to Adjust Tile Size Smaller?

Question on Type tiles or any tiles, is there way to size like (-2x, -4x etc) Height or width?
It would give even more flexibility

@Bob_Ciolino thanks for the message!

The most common way to do this is to adjust your base tile size to be smaller and then increase the size of each of your ‘normal’ tiles accordingly.

The base tile size is Medium (160px). So if you wanted to be able to create ‘half’ sized tiles, you could change your baseline Tile Size in the Dashboard Settings to Tiny (80px) and then double the size of all your existing tiles to get them back to ‘normal’.

(eg. 1x1 tiles become 2x2… and 2x1 tiles become 4x2 tiles).

Here’s an example video where I reduce the base Tile Size by half so I can make the garage door tile 1/2 sized:

Note that you can also use a ‘Custom’ tile size which lets you specify any baseline tile size dimension you want. The thing to keep in mind is that the tile size in the Tile Editor is a multiplier of baseline tile size (literally 1×baseline, 2×baseline, etc.).

Sorry I sent another email,
1)My suggestion would be set the dashboard size setting to a “base” size then I would custom each individual tile for my preference.
See attached for an example of what I mean.

2) Would like to see more tile size options in the dashboard settings. Is it possible to have a option that the user can can type in the size in px?

All my input is to help with the “look” not really the functionally of the program.

Other thoughts down the road:

A) Radius the corners of the tiles

B) More color choices

C) Gradient of the colors

D) Adding a stroke to tiles

E) Adding colors

etc…

@Bob_Ciolino I noticed that you replied from email rather than on the community directly, so I’m not sure if you saw the details of my reply above, including the video, as it enables you to create smaller tiles. :grin:

Thanks for the suggestion around additional customizations. I’ve noted the feedback. One of the key drivers for how we determine what we work on is the level of community interest, so posting to the community is a good starting point!

Off hand where is the best place to leave suggestions. Email or community board

@Bob_Ciolino you can suggest right here in the community. As @josh mentioned, our development priority is usually based on the interests received in the community. So posting new ideas/suggestions here and others can comment if they are interested as well. :slight_smile:
