is an option that specifies how much smaller to render graphics that appear within other constructs.


  • ImageSizeMultipliers->{u,v} specifies that graphics set to ImageSize->Automatic inside list-like constructs should be u times their normal size, while graphics inside function-like constructs should be v times their normal size.
  • A typical default setting for ImageSizeMultipliers is {0.5, 0.25}.
  • Typeset constructs that use u to scale graphics they encompass include Grid, Button, and Inset.
  • Most typesetting constructs that represent controls or mathematical typesetting use v to scale graphics they encompass.
