How to scale Jira Gadget

scale jira gadget.JPGHi There,


I am looking to scale jira gadgets from their original size. 

For example the Task gadget leaves a lot of extra space below the text. I want it to ideally scale to the size of the text. 

At a minimum if i can scale the height manually that would help.
