I have Nova Launcher as the default launcher on my phone I change the icons 150%, but they're not displaying at the size I tell them to and I can't remember how to fix it. Note 20 Ultra

In Nova's settings, go to Look & Feel>Icon Style, and make sure "Normalize icon size" is unchecked. Does that help?

Only option is Match Desktop, and no it didn't help. I think there's a permissions box to uncheck, I just can't recall

That's odd, you don't see this?

Do you have Nova Prime, or the free version? I wonder if this is a Prime benefit.

You know what I just checked the app and it's Nova 7 I'm downloading Nova Prime now- not sure how that occurred let me see how that works. In the meantime I did use a screen zoom that helped a bit but I think that's probably the main issue Nova 7 versus using Nova Prime

It still shows as the same. The screen shot I have doesn't have anything past what shows at the bottom. I'm using a dark theme

Nova Prime is the paid version of Nova Launcher, which gives some extra features. Nova 7 should be the most current version of Nova Launcher.

On the screen that you shared, there's nothing if you scroll all the way down?

Yes there is nothing past what showed in the screen shot.

If you have too many grids, Nova will also limit the size of your apps. I would try clearing the data and cache to Nova and starting over and seeing if that works. Try clearing the cache and restarting the app first though.

I have the same issue!!

Using Nova Launcher Prime 7.0.57.

I do not have the "Normalize icon size" option to be able to uncheck it.

This has been bugging me for several months.

Thanks! Didn't know I could Beta test 8 yet.

Tried it. i think i like it! It let me go up to 200% for icon size on the desktop! That definitely overcame any sizing issues even if they persisted.

One note: The home screen dock background for me was stuck on solid opaque red. Back to 7 for me, but excited for when 8 is out of beta!
