I know that row height can not be manually adjusted like in excel, that's usually no problem. In my case, one sheet has had some select rows height change, as if someone wrapped/unwrapped text or changed the text positioning but the formatting didn't follow. I have un-hid and checked every cell for a spot that may have text mis-formatted. 

I can correct this by copying the rows and pasting them back, the formatting is then as expected. It is just a very manual process to copy/paste/delete so many rows manually and ensure nothing else gets messed up. Interestingly enough, cutting the rows and pasting them back does not fix the formatting.

Adding a feature to manually adjust row height would be valuable.

Do you have any pictures attached to the cells?

I'd recommend removing the Wrap on each column to try and find out which one is causing the issue.

Adjusting row height manually. Great idea! That would be a great addition to Smartsheet features.

Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

Did you find the reason?

Hope that helps!

Have a fantastic day!

I have this problem on occasion as well. I have found that saving the sheet then refreshing my browser window will "reset" the row height to where it should be. I also do not need to do this on a row. If I notice the issue, I go ahead and finish working on everything else within the sheet then refresh my browser tab after I have saved at whatever point I wold have normally saved anyway and all of the mis-formatted rows are corrected at once.
