Yes you can stretch the height with the pet palette just like a normal wall.
However you can’t make it shorter than the original profile.
You can only stretch higher.
So the profile has to be made as the shortest height you will require.
This has changed in version 22 as far as I can recall (I don’t have Archicad in front of me at the moment).
You can now stretch shorter as well.
