How to change the the height of the rows.

Lengthening the height of the rows is generally done from the row boundaries. There is another way to do it via file menus at the top of the window but how to do that varies between some software versions and I will not go into software version specifics for this because I'm going to keep this simple.

Row BoundariesRow HeaderThe methods to increase the row height described on this page will involve the Row Boundary. The Row Boundary is the line between Row Headers. The row headers and row boundaries are located all the way to the left side of the worksheet.

Tip: When placing the cursor in a row boundary, the cursor will change to something like this boundary icon when it is in the right place.

To Change the Height of One Row by Dragging

  1. Place the cursor on the row boundary under the row header.
  2. Click the left mouse button
  3. Drag the row boundary either up or down, depending on if the row needs to be shorter or taller.

To "AutoFit" the Height to Contents of One Row by Double-Clicking

This method does not always work.

  1. Place the cursor on the row boundary under the row header.
  2. Double-click the left mouse button

To Change the Height of Several Rows by Dragging

This usually causes all of the selected rows to become the same height.

  1. Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard
  2. Place the cursor at the first row header of the group of rows that you want to change
  3. Click the left mouse button and
  4. Select the rest of the rows that you want to change
  5. Place the cursor in one of the row boundaries
  6. Click the left mouse button and hold it down
  7. Wait for the row height information to appear (this step might be unnecessary)
  8. Drag the row boundary either up or down, depending on if the rows needs to be shorter or taller.

To "AutoFit" the Height to Contents of Several Rows by Double-Clicking

This usually causes all of the selected rows to autofit the contents. This does not always work.

  1. Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard
  2. Place the cursor at the first row header of the group of rows that you want to change
  3. Click the left mouse button and
  4. Select the rest of the rows that you want to change
  5. Place the cursor in one of the row boundaries
  6. Double-click the left mouse button

Changing the Row Height to a Specific Height via Right-Click Menu

  1. Right-click the Row Header of the row that you want to change
  2. Select Row Height from the menu
  3. Change the number. If the number field is blank, enter any number. If you are unsure of what number to try, enter 30 and see what that looks like and then change it up or down from there.
  4. Press OK

This can be done to several rows at once by selecting the rows at its Row Header while holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard.
