I want to share my workaround with you. It is not perfect, you lose the ability to add an animation to a marker, but you get the functionality of the marker. 

I make the maker's background and border the same color and then increase the line width of the maker to match the size I need. I add an image to the normal state to change the button's icon. I made a quick and crude video of this process. I hope it helps.

Hi Chris! Can I find the video of your Workaround somewhere? That would help a lot!

Hi Tamara!

Thanks for checking in on this!

Not to worry! The feature request to allow authors the ability to customize the marker size in Storyline has not been abandoned! Our development team has been prioritizing other features, so I don't have any updates to share at this time.

I've included you in the feature report so you can be notified as soon as we have news to share!

For your reference, here's a deeper look at how we manage feature requests.

We've gotten user feedback that the markers are too small. We embedded the "too small" marker inside a larger icon, but that marker's interactive area is still too small. This is especially a problem when users are interacting via a tablet and need to tap on a specific invisible portion of the larger icon to get the interaction to work - it's less of an issue when using a desktop/laptop.
