Row Height

You can change the row height of selected cells by choosing Data | Format | Row Height or by using the mouse to size the row. The Excel XLS, Excel XLSX, or SYLK SLK file format must be used to save the row height and numeric format information with the file since ASCII file formats (.CSV, .TXT, .DAT, .BNA, .BLN) do not preserve file format information.


The Row Height Dialog

To set row heights or to hide rows, select the entire row or individual cells within the rows, and then select Data | Format | Row Height. Enter the width for the selected row or cells in the Row Height dialog. Rows can range from zero to 512 characters in height.
