Helen & Carl,

If you want to dynamically expand and contract the pallette size (at  
least on a Mac with OSX)
you can turn on the magnification button in Window Properties |  
Window Elements.
This attaches a pop-up window button at the bottom of the pallette  
from which you can
choose a pallette magnification factor (range 50->300%).

The only pallette I wanted to apply this to that I could not was  
ColorSchemes. This may
be a restriction due to the graphics content of this pallette.  
Perhaps Carl could explain.

Hope this helps.
