Hi this great! if it’s not too much to ask, can you visually add the control to change the icon size? I know that in class I can add for example fa-2x and change the size but I think it would be nice to have it visually. Thanks!

The bootstrap icons don’t have modifier classes, fa-2x is from font-awesome. Youcan use font-size and color in the Design or Styles tab to style the icon.
