Thank you for contacting us.
When the rows are resized by dragging their borders (interacting with the mouse), there is a default minimum height which cannot be changed out-of-the-box unfortunately. This is why you cannot change the row's height to a lower value. That value is 20px.
If you have further questions, please get back to us again.
