The height of the ribbon can not be simply changed:
- small / medium button size must be changed to something
- large button size must be changed to three times that value
- additional items such as dropdown list, combo, color picker must also be changed
- gallery must be changed.
In short, changing the height of the ribbon is not an easy task and has multiple dependencies.
