Allow Manual Adjustment of Row Height


Excel has this functionality and it is invaluable for managing the display of data in sheets.

Just because I have a lot of narrative information in a cell does not mean I want to have it all visible all the time when in the sheet. Often it is more valuable to see more rows than to see all the information in a cell at the expense of different rows. (Turning off text wrapping, and widening or hiding the column are not sufficient answers.)

    Hi, do we know how to adjust row height?

    The same way Excel does, either by dragging it to the desired height or specifying a numeric value.

    I have seen multiple posts over a few years asking how to adjust row height, but no viable workaround or no indication that Smartsheet is planning to add it as a feature in a future release. This is a simple function. Column width can be easily adjusted, why not row height? I have rows with multiple comments that need to be tracked, but having the entire comment history displayed in a row makes the Smartsheet difficult to read and requires extensive scrolling just to navigate up and down in the Smartsheet.
