Default [Q] Reduce size of on-screen buttons?

Just picked up my M8. Coming from an Evo LTE (Jewel), the size of the on-screen buttons is very frustrating. I keep finding myself typing in the wrong place. Tried immersive mode with an Xposed module, but eh.

I haven't seen a ROM yet that includes smaller on-screen buttons, but I know such a thing exists for other devices, so I can only assume it would be available for the M8.

Does this capability exist yet?;

Have you tried an Auto Hide keys app?

I don't think there's a way to make them smaller without a custom ROM or Xposed module. As soon as ROM development kicks off then we should see much more customizability.

Well, I didn't want to hide them completely; just make them take up less space on the screen. The immersive mode module for Xposed hides the buttons (as well as the status bar), but I'm not sure I want things things hidden all the time.

there is an app called "Dimension123" on the play store. There you can edit the height.

I'm having a little difficulty finding it. Do you happen to have a link?

Yeah, sorry. It's an Xposed module not an app on play store. You have to be rooted and using Xposes Installer.
