    Any way of changing the font size? I changed my display settings font size to tiny already but it doesn't affect the pull down. The fonts take up too much real estate.

    I was wondering about this too. I'd like to just decrease the scale of the entire pull-down in general. The brightness fader takes up twice the amount of space that it should, the toggle buttons don't need to be so large, and the "ongoing" and notifications are entirely too massive as well.
    The only thing that's sized perfectly is the time and date at the top left.

    I wish they'd allow for more customization outside of rooting and installing different software.

    I used to ROM during the OG Droid times but I'm trying to stay away from the flashing every other day. It would be nice if they can address this in the next update or so.

    Have you tried the 2 finger option. What you see may be more clear and the other stuff less distracting. Use 2 fingers to pull down the menu.

    Didn't know this was a thing, but all it's doing for me is opening straight to the full toggle-button window.

    I was thinking it would make it appear better, easier, to see. But I think you'll probably strike out on the font size no matter what.

    Ok, I was messing with the display settings and I didn't know that the "brightness" ongoing notification can be switched off! I just just recovered one line of space! :)

    Quite a few options here (both with and without root):

    I wonder if any of them will also modify the notification font size?
