How to Reduce the Size of a Block Content Field

Is there any way to reduce the size of a Block content field? For a

Hi
user P
, great points on screen real estate and visual cues. Unfortunately, it's not possible today to control the height of a block content field, but it's an important feature request. I've also seen it come up for a single-line block content field, e.g. to allow a few styling options on a short label text.
Here's a workaround, although it's not the prettiest. This would decrease the height on
all block content fields, but it might be possible to target one of them specifically [will have to look into that]:
:global([class^="PortableTextInput_editorBoxContent"]) {
  height: 8rem;
}

Thanks for your input! Would be great if we could have something like
className
as an option for any of the fields. That way we could target specific fields quite easily.
PS I presume I would have to set up the css like this then?

That's correct, it should be in the overrides. I should have specified ๐Ÿ™‚ Will forward the
className
suggestion to the components team, thanks!
