    I have two spreadsheets, side by side, in separate panels. The left sheet has tabs, the right does not. Is there a way (other than by setting the horizontal scrollbar height) to set the height of the tab/horizontal area. Depending on the font size, the scrollbar can be too big.

    Other than setting HorizontalScrollbarHeight property, TabStrip Height cannot be modified.
    For details, please refer documentation:

    Then I think this would be a good enhancement request

    What would be the best way to get the tabstrip height? from that I could adjust the horizontal scroll bar height so that the sheets would line up if the current tabstrip height is greater than the horizontal scroll bar height.

    Also note that scroll bar width and heights seem to vary depending on the DPI value for the monitor being used. This is not ideal. Excel scrollbars are the same size on all dpi screens.

    We have received an update from the developers and I am sorry to inform you that Spread does not support custom tab strip height.
