Align font size of KPI & summary visualizations on a dashboard tab

We'Id like to have the font size of KPI and summary visualizations aligned, at least on a tab.
Typically on dashboards KPI/Summary visualizations are aligned adjacent on a dashboard tab, with identical visualization box sizes. To make things look good, the font size should be the same.

Right now, depending on the value (ex #months= 3, volume = 500 tons, revenue= 3.6 K) the font size is determined automatically. To make things worse, KPI's less important are shown bigger than those that are important (ex #months).

Fyi, Above is just a simplified example, as we have tabs with +10 KPI's showing.

Other option could be allowing to specify font size (or small/medium/large/auto), but this would loose the current benefit of auto-resizing font when resizing screens.

Dashboards are used by business analyts, but also sales and management, and these type of seemingly small formatting issues can be show-stoppers.

We have more and more requests coming from independent departments (who are also comparing with other BI tools) asking for the same thing, so I am sure we are not the only ones that would benefit from this idea/request.

    This is a great idea, even the simple table visual from dashboards. You can't adjust the width of each column, and do simple Wrap Text. Makes a simple and powerful visual be almost impossible to use, with no auto-adjustment of width or manual width adjustment possibilities. Hope they do something about small customizations
