screenshot from 6.3 alpha1

LO calc sheet tabs are increased in height and width for 6.3 Alpha1. Lots of wasted space. With LO Calc 6.3.0 Alpha0 and before the tabs are just big enough to fit the sheet name. With 6.3 Alpha1 there is lots of empty space in tabs. I have attached two screenshot examples. With Alph0 I display 20 sheet tab names that fit on the tabs very well. On the same screenshot with Alpha1 15 tabs appear with lots of wasted space requiring additional tabbing to see all the tabs. I think it should be put back as in Alpha0 and previous releases. It serves no purpose, not more readable etc. to have the tabs oversize.

I can confirm with 6.3, Linux
Comment 4 Rich 2019-05-20 15:22:48 UTC
From the above comment it appears this change was intentional.  I respectfully disagree that it is more readable but unintentionally adds more keystrokes/mouse clicks to scroll through the tabs. Does not seem like much additional but every change like this adds up to make a product slower and less productive. Is there anything more I can do to voice my concern for this unnecessary change?
