    Hello guys,

    does anyone know how to scale launchpad icons so I can fit more on one screen? I have 30" display so i would rather have more icons and smaller than those large ones.
    Any ideas?

    Thank you very much

    I'd like to be able to do this too. I think they are waaay too large even on a 15" screen - they must look like dinner plates on a 30" :p

    I guess they're the "correct" size for the 11" MBA screen, but should be scalable for larger screens

    Looks like there isn't a way to tweak this folks.

    The default layout is 8 apps across and this seems fixed no matter what device you're using (kinda like iOS I guess.)

    So on my Air it looks perfect but on my iMac they look HUGE!

    I've been searching high and low for some kind of plist or something with the launchpad settings - can't find it anywhere. Looks like they even have the images wrapped up inside the compiled script.

    I hope there will be a fix soon as those icons are huge.
