Height and width controls were added to Power BI elements a while back. This makes it super convenient to resize visuals and maintain consistency. However, I often use basic elements like lines, triangles, etc in my reports for better design and navigation and need to be able to enter values less than 40 px.

With the current functionality, I can drag and resize these elements to less than 40px, but the height/width boxes turn red and say they are too small. I cannot enter anything less than 40 px in these boxes.

This is really a pity as dragging works but it makes it almost impossible to get many visuals in an aligned grid. This would be super handy if the height less then 40 could be entered manually in the General setting of the visuals.

That limitation is really annoying and it affects my work on a daily basis.

'+1 this is a frequent annoyance across my team. While I'm guessing this limitation came from UX designers thinking about touch screen target sizes, many items I need to resize are not touch/click targets. It is not stopping us from resizing by dragging - but very tedious and time consuming when trying to size shapes precisely for clean visual design of reports.

Fully agree, 40px is far too big for some components
