if it makes no difference for you as a developer - why not be generous and set it to an even higher value...? let´s say 200 or even 400px...
It does indeed mean a lot to me. I try to set things within the norms or what people should be using. A 400 px tall Navigation Bar is not that though. This is what 400 px looks like height-wise:
That is an unrealistic navigation bar height. This verges on a banner, and not a Navigation Bar. While 200px is better, it too is pretty big as far as Navigation Bars go.
I could see upping the max to maybe 120 px. But I will take a look and see how that plays out and looks on a page with other elements.
The option to set a higher max height does not mean the user is forced to do it...
This is true, but why make a modification that isn't going to be used. No one should really be using a Navigation bar this big. It is one of those cases where if you're doing this, you might as well be using a logo in the Banner instead. It will look less awkward.
since it is always nice to align logo and the text of the actual navigation menu I would love to fine tune especially the vertical alignment of the logo.
Honestly this is easier done by adding a small amount of empty space in your image to adjust its positioning. The number of controls that would have to be implemented would add a lot of extra Stacks variables to the stack. With each added Stacks variable you increase the processing time in Edit Mode and slow things down.
