Issue Details

When I change the scale range of a silver vertical pointer slide control to bigger numbers, they don't fit in the surrounding rectangle. Can I resize the rectangle?


It is not possible, to directly resize the rectangle. However it is possible to make a trivial custom control change to the standard silver one. 

1. On the Front Panel, select the control.
2. Click Edit->Customize Control...
3. In the new Windows that opened, click Operate-> Change to Customize Mode
4. Change the rectangle Size per Drag and Drop as with any standard controls.
5. Save and use changed control to fit your desired Scale Range
