Smaller hero web part
Hi! It would be great if you could chose to have the hero web part in lesser height.
We’ve reduced the height of the hero web part when in full width columns, but still maintain as much of the aspect ratio as possible. On a very large monitor this can still make the hero quite tall. Authors could also drag hero our of the full width column, into a one column layout (with gutters) , which significantly reduces the height. How would you imagine it should work differently in the full width, or is moving to a one column layout the right choice for reduced height? Thanks!

the last ask in 2019 seem to over-complicate this, just make the option to have a half-height hero webpart so that it takes up less vertical space
Yes, i agree there should be option so that we can adjust the height of the Hero Web Part in SharePoint modern pages.

I agree with most comments below, but the ability to adjust the height of the web part in general would be extremely useful. Many comments from laptop users for sites is that it is just too big. A compact option (pre-set) would be better than nothing though.
Agree with many of the comments here - what would be really useful is a compact version that displays all five tiles when positioned in one of the columns in the two column layout. At present only one tile shows when you put the hero into a two column layout column. Users can of course see the other tiles if they use the forward and back buttons that display if they mouse over the hero. Problem is many of our users just won't be bothered to mouse over the hero tile to find more information.
Yes what I would see as being useful is when in the full width column you could set the hero to a "Compact" view that would reduce the height of the entire webpart by 30% or so. As it is now on many screen resolutions the hero part is so large it dominates the page and you need to scroll to far that many of my users dont realize there's content below it.
yes, please a smaller version

It would be great if we could just drop and drag the corner of the hero box to choose the size of it.
It would be nice to have a smaller hero option that is bigger than the tile-buttons - where you can also insert pictures as background.
The current button options are not very nice as either you can only insert icons (looks really bad with pictures as icons) and too often the titles are also too “long”...
It would be great to have more options of the hero tiles, e.g. all 5/6 tiles same size, one big tile also on right side...
This would definitely look better design-wise.

They hero webpart needs to be driven off of the news posts, instead of having to edit the page. Create a check box that will put the post in the hero with an expiration date to remove it.
Or just a separate, smaller hero web part...a heroine?
Any update on this? It's far too big for laptop screens.

Agreed, love the hero part but we need a smaller option.
