If this is just this one line could it be added to app settings?

The pull request from UR_ makes it adjustable via Preferences...

I'll try at least, thanks very much for you all ! :P
Or you can just wait a couple of days until it's in the daily build.

I'm afraid, only via Parameters ("the registry"), not Preferences.

Of course only changeable by menu item: Tools->Edit parameters

First insert needed parameter "NaviWidgetSize", type: integer at BaseApp->Preferences->View:

"NaviFontStretch" is an integer according this table:

Hope these possible abbreviations and font stretchings (up to 100, so not condensed) will increase readability.

I think the NaviCube settings should go into their own sub-group underneath the View group.

Since there are a few more settings we can think about creating one preferences page only for the NaviCube.

Please also consider making the NaviCube font customizable.

Didn't manage to finish the work quite yet, in the future i plan to release a module for customizing the navigation cube menu. If desired i can add a simple settings section to it, for exposing such parameters.

P.S. If they instead get added to Preferences ... that is OK by me.
