Star size according to magnitude

I have Starry Night Pro 6.  I am reasonably happy with it, except for one thing.  Every star, no matter what its apparent magnitude is, is displayed as a dot of the same size.  I have tried different star display options (Spikey, Photographic etc.,), but the size of a given star is still the same, irrespective of its magnitude.  I wish that Starry Night Pro will show Sirius, the brightest star in our sky, as a bigger dot than the Pole Star, which is much fainter.

I have other minor quibbles with Starry Night, but the above is the main one.  If you can fix this, many of your customers will be very happy.
