728px height, what screen is that? did you mean 768?

What desktop font are you using?

Ardour use the desktop as base for the GUI. Using a Sans 11pt default
Desktop font it should be possible to get Ardour's GUI on a 1024 x 768
screen with 100% font-scaling. Worst case 90%.

The main issue on modern desktops is a huge window border and decoration
and task-bar that reduce vertical available space. Width is usually less
of an issue.

What is the smallest height on your system? What tab does set the
minimum height? perhaps try to detach the preferences tab and mixer tab
(using Ardour's Window menu).
