Inspector - resizable or not?

If by "Inspector" you mean what I think of as the "Properties Palette"
on Xubuntu 17.10 I always (8.1.9) get a fairly "normal" thing when I 
first open it.

I can increase the WIDTH of the Inspector, but I cannot increase its HEIGHT.

I would suppose (?) a "happy little work around" might be to have a 
startup script that goes
something like this:

set the width of stack "revInspectorTemplate" to 300
set the width of stack "revInspectorTemplate" to 500

HOWEVER: having just tried that, it doesn't seem to work.

Doing this:

set the width of stack "revInspector" to 300
set the width of stack "revInspector" to 500

while resizing the stack "revInspector" doesn't affect the Properties 

Where am I getting things wrong?
