I have a spreadsheet in which each row is a different height. When I try to move one row in-between two others (holding SHIFT and dragging the border) it's height changes. Is there any quick way (key shortcut, etc.) that I can maintain the height when moving cells? Also how can I maintain height when copying from one sheet to another?

Oh, and one more thing:
I have a cell in which the text is too large to fit inside and it gets cropped (that's how I want it). Now I want to add a second line (line 2) of text to this cell (pressing ALT+ENTER), so that line 1 is cropped and then the new text of line 2 starts below it. However, when I add the line break it pushes the cropped part of line 1 down to the next line, and line two gets pushed down another line (line 3). Is there anyway to keep all of the text from line 1 on it's line? (If this is confusing i'll try to explain it better)

Thanks guys,

Dan

Excel Facts

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Hi Dan,
Answer to your first question.

Select the whole ROW by left clicking on the row number, and then drag the entire row, again by pulling its border to the desired place. It will maintain the height.

Same method goes for copying the entire row.

Rows height is a property of the entire row, therefore you cant maintain height on cells and you must do it on the entire row.
