How can task line height (row height) be automatically adjusted to display all the content in the cell, for the whole project (using Project Pro 2010)?
The height of the task row is automatically adjusted by double-clicking right below task id (on the line separator), but how can I have all task rows height automatically adjusted?
Thanks a lot,
Very simple, click in the upper left box to activate the whole view sheet. Then grab and drag the row separator line between any two rows and all rows will adjust accordingly.
Hope this hleps.

Hi John, Thanks a lot for your reply. I can see that my question was not clear enough. I would like the row height to adjust to the existing content, which works when I double click on the row separator line between any two rows. But I can't figure out how to do it for all rows.
Yes, more clarity does make all the difference.
Unfortunately there is no way to initiate a global adjustment of all row heights, at least as far as I know. However a similar question was asked in this forum a few weeks back. A user wanted to adjust the row height based on content of specific field columns. I wrote a macro to accomplish that and it was tweaked by Jan DeMessemaeker. You can find the post and thread with a search on this forum. Look for a post dated Feb. 15, 2011 by Betty in NJ titled, "Adjusting Row Height in a view with a Macro".
Hope this helps.
Since you have Microsoft Project 2010, a new feature in this version of the software is auto wrapping of task names. When the text auto wraps, it will increase the row height automatically for any task whose name is too long to fit in the current column width. To use this feature, click and hold on the right edge of the Task Name column header, and then drag to the right to increase the column width, or drag to the left to decrease the column width. When you release the mouse button, Microsoft Project 2010 will automatically wrap the text of any task name that is too long to fit in the current column width, and will increase the row height for each task as needed. Does this answer your question? Let us know and we will try to help.

Thanks a lot Dale, it works great.
If select the column header (so that it selects the whole column) and click on the 'Wrap text' button, it works great.
Thank you very much,

Hi, I have a couple of problems related to this and would appreciate any help I can get - I'm a new user of MS Project 2010 without training. :)
In the resources column, when I select several resources they are automatically displayed separated by commas but no spaces. When I want to Wrap Text in that column it does not work and the column comes out to be very wide, which is a problem for presentation that I need to insert this view into. How can I make it work?
Also, I related to the real estate problem that was in the earlier question. It seems that my laptop only displayes 12 tasks and adjusting the view zoom in the right lower corner does not do anything (which is bizzarre by itself). Any advise?
2012年2月29日 20:22版主Mila --To answer your questions:1. You cannot use the wrap text feature in the Resource Names column for the very reason you mention, nor is there any workaround of which I am aware.2. The Zoom Slider only controls the level of zoom shown on the Timescale bar in the Gantt Chart part of the Gantt Chart view. It does not affect the font size of the tasks shown on the left side of the Gantt Chart view. This functionality is totally different than what you might have expected from using Excel, where the Zoom Slider zooms everything in the spreadsheet. Short of changing the font size for all tasks in your project, there is no workaround to this issue either.Hope this helps.
Thank you Dale. I appreciate your quick response.
