Reduce card height in backlog view

We have a kanban board backlog with a lot of epics in it.

It is very difficult to get an overview because of the height of every card (item) you can only see a few on the screen.

In the configure board screen you can change card layout but only add fields not make the card more compact.

Is there a way to make the card more compact and get more "rows" on one page in the board?

Currently, it's not support to change the size of the card.

And just to better navigate your way around the board, my suggestion would be to use more quick filters to filter out cards on the screen as resizing cards isn't possible yet.

We use quick filters to see subsets of the backlog most of the time.

The biggest problem is when we want to change priority in the total backlog and have to drag something from the bottom of the backlog way up among the total backlog content.
