automatically the new row height?

Row height is a property of the table being shown. Select View/Table/More
Tables...

Select the table currently being shown. In the Gantt View the default table
is the Entry table. Once you have selected the table of your choice, select
Edit...
You will find Row Height has a spin box near the center in the bottom area
of the form. The value selected is an integer.

Krish,
If you just want to set a single default row height, Jim's suggestion is
the way to go. However if you are looking for a setting the will
automatically adjust each task row height as you type in text, (i.e.
single height for one line of text, double height for two lines of text,
etc.), Project will not do that. The best you can do is to manually drag
the row separators to adjust each row height as needed after the line of
text has been entered.

Keep in mind that Project is a scheduling application, not a word
processing application.

Printing Varied Row-Heights

John my problem is this:

In the Gantt view of my project the row heights vary due to longer task descriptions.

In print preview & actual printed copies, row heights remain uniform & do not respect the row heights dictated in the Gantt view (ie longer descriptions of larger row height are cut off in Preview; as they are shown in smaller row height that is uniform with rest)

I know that through editing the entry table I can change the uniform row height to a larger size however that does not suit my intention to print a schedule showing various row heights corresponding to the length of the task descriptions.

This function was automatic in previous versions of Project yet does not seem available in 2013.

In your previous post in this forum you state "the best you can do is manually drag the row separators to adjust each row height as needed..." this works only insofar as various row heights display in Gantt view, but these do not display the same in Preview.

Any thoughts?
