I want to use Number card to show a single scalar value in as small of a space as possible. Currently it is limited to a minimum of 3x3. Why? All I am showing is a number and 3x3 is wasting valuable space. Given that text cards can be a single square high I see no reason for the arbitrary minimum on a Number card. Even 2x2 would be much better.

Additionally the rounding looses information that I want to see - #4369

A smaller grid size would also help - #7516

Part of the challenge has to do with what one grid unit equals in terms of pixels at different window sizes. For example, you can see in this mockup with a 1100px-wide browser window, a 1x1 scalar card isn't really feasible (even with the 12pt font used in the mockup of that card). I do think a 2x2 could probably work, though.

Ah yes I was wondering about how scaling was handled after I submitted the issue.

I propose the following:

  1. Decrease the number card minimum to be 2 wide and 2 high
  2. Decrease the text card minimum width to be 2 (the height minimum is already 1)

@MarkRx with your 2x2 minimum this now becomes more or less == #5662 which asks for < 3x3.

Your issue has better content - the other one has more votes.
