Grid display

I have been trying with no success to date to get the Grid display to 
give me smaller boxes, and an A-P along the top and 1-24 down the 
side, so that I can use it for inputting hyb data on a 4x4 gridded, 
384-well plate library in an easy way.
The main issue is getting the grid of boxes to be small enough to fit 
on a screen so they are visible all-at-once (using a big 19" screen I 
can currently see 16x4 across but only ~14x4 up and down).
The toggle small display option for grids is curious in that it gives 
a set of boxes delimited only by their corners, and is oddly affected 
by choosing particular clones on the grid.

Can I reduce the "box" size in the non-minimised grid view?
The lettering is less important but would be useful.
