Hi Rui,

in elementary, you can scale each visual element independently by
using the function

void elm_object_scale_set (Evas_Object *obj, double scale)

on the evas object. The scale factor is applied to all elements of the
object, i.e. not only the button size but also the buttons text is

Note however that there is a minimal size of buttons, and other finger
touchable things: ELM_FINGER_SIZE.

ELM_FINGER_SIZE is an environment variable that gives the diameter of
the finger in pixels, and elementary will make sure that buttons will
never get smaller than ELM_FINGER_SIZE, such that they stay usable
with your fingers...,

Hope this helps
