Vertical zoom of clips in Arrangement view, please

I really miss the ability to make the clips taller. In Cubase they are very easy to view, almost like building blocks, in Live they are almost stripes. And it's a mystery to me why the Overview gets taller and taller until adding the 12th track, then from 13th it suddenly shrinks to a being very thin again.

You can grab the "bottom of the track" on the right side where the controls for volume, panning, sends, mute, etc. are and make the track higher / lower.

I know that thank you, but that's not what I'm talking about. Have a look at clips in Cubase or Bitwig, they are more rectangle-like.

Oh, you mean the clip details ("MIDI Note Editor") beneath the Arrangement view?

First, you can grab the horizontal line between the Arrangement and MIDI Note Editor and make it as big as you like.

Second, if the bars are still not tall enough for you, click & hold left mouse button on the strip with note names (C2, C3, etc.) left to the piano keys, and drag it right - this will increase the vertical size of your notes.

Is that it?

I think what he means is that in Ableton, clips in the timeline have a colored strip at the top and then the clip contents beneath that (if the track is expanded), which are not colored (transparent).
No matter how high you make the tracks in the arrange view, that colored part of the clip doesn't get any higher. Whereas in Cubase or most other DAW's the bit with the clip contents is also colored, so clips look more like blocks rather than strips, and the blocks get higher if you size the track vertically. From an aesthetic and visual identification point of view I guess I would prefer it that way too

If that's the case, then people really should explain themselves better.
Also, how is that even an issue?!

No thanks.
