Add ability to adjust size of decoded protocol overlay


It would be nice if the decoded protocol overlay was able to be enlarged so it's more readable. The text is very small and hard to read. Adding the ability to increase the font size would be a huge benefit.

Some more ideas below:
* Under Options->Radix, add a selectable radio-button "Minimize", which removes '0x' from Hex, '0b' from bin, and the single-quotes from Ascii. We know what Radix we're using, allow us the option to minimize displayed characters.

* If the blue-box is wide enough, show the text normally

* If the blue-box is small, rotate the text -90

* Even smaller, shrink the rotated font 1 or 2 steps, then make it disappear.

Even smaller fonts also good. Frustrating as I zoom out (async serial) to have values blank out. Font could go much smaller for me, as window is spread across 3 screens to "get the picture"

I was shocked to find that the decoded data overlay was so small, with no apparent method to enlarge it. I purchased my LogicPro16 specifically to use as a protocol decoder, and the tiny font of the decoded data is a definite letdown. Please add this feature so I don't go insane from squinting to read the tiny decoded data.

We're going to try to solve these issues comprehensively in the next generation software, and we're actually working on this particular part of it now. You can check discuss.saleae.com for the latest Alpha - this will be rolling out over the next month.

The solution may not end up matching the exact suggestions above, to be clear, but aim to solve the underlying issue.
