Make a row of a table an exact height

Post by billmounce » 2016-04-06 09:26:46

I maybe missing something, but isn't there a way to make a table row a specific height (e.g., .25 inches)?

G’day, billmounce et al

Apart from using the “.setUserHeightAtRow” Table object command in the macro language, there is no facility to enter a table row height directly.

You can, however, select a table, position the cursor over a row’s lower border and drag it up or down. As you do so, the corresponding row height is displayed in a floating text field adjacent to the cursor.

Note that these methods only set the minimum height of a row. A row’s height will increase as necessary to accommodate content.

The inability to fix row heights and column widths is a weakness of the tables which should have been fixed long since.
