The size is also limited in the horizontal panel and centered. I don't know if this was also the case in plasma 1, but at least on the vertical panel the size was limited. Like I said in a previous commit, this restores the behaviour from plasma 1 on a vertical panel. I just noticed, that the icons from e.g. the task list and the system tray change with the selected font size. Would this also be an option for the kickoff icon? If yes, how can I access this size?

What do you mean with popupapplet? Keep in mind, I'm not a plasma developer, so it might not be obvious for me.
