Feature Request - Height Adjustable Rows


This is an excellent tool, but it would be useful if the content cell/row heights were adjustable, or at least auto-adjusted to the contained content. I think this would make working on longer text attributes that bit easier.

Thank you.

I think you mean to auto-wrap long text lines - which is generally a good idea.
But this would conflict with the correct preview of multi-line text, as it does now, and which has the higher precedence for me. I will have to investigate if both features can coexist.

Maybe for now you can use the new feature of Excel ex- and import. Just export everything to excel, where you can adjust text wrapping and row heights, make your changes and import everything again.

Hi Tom, thank you for taking the time to reply and your suggestion - I will certainly try this.

I really 'just' wanted to drag the row height down so that it was easier to edit longer fragments of text. Failing this a dedicated editing panel somewhere on the layout for the active cell, or even a pop-up editing panel would be good too.

Sorry, the tool is great as it is, but recently I have had to create a lot of long text fragments and I found myself creating them in a text editor and then cutting and pasting them into the relevant cells and, being lazy, I thought I'd see if I could make work for someone else!

Once again, thanks for your help and creating ResX in the first place.

Yes, good idea - a dedicated editing panel like in Excel would be very helpful in that case, and it would not break other features. I definitely keep that in the backlog!
