Issue Details

The buttons for graph palette tool are too small and are not handy to be used. Can I zoom the buttons or display multiple buttons in a row?


You cannot change these built in features, but you can create custom buttons that select the graph palette tools programmatically using the Palette:Active Tool Property.

  1. Create Boolean button for each tool you want to customize. 
  2. In the block diagram, add a While Loop and an Event Structure.
  3. Add the Palette:Active Tool Property by right clicking on the Waveform Graph or Chart and select Create > Property Node > Palette > Active Tool.
  4. Wire the integer value to the property node to set the tool that is currently selected on the graph palette.
