Adding columns to table increases row height
Hi all. I'm having a confounding problem with tables. I had a table that consisted of a header row plus six regular rows. All of the rows were the same height, and everything fit. Then I had to add three columns to the right. Instead of increasing the width of the overall table to the right to accommodate them, SL tried to fit them within the table's original width. This made some of the text go to two lines and increased the row heights. I adjusted the table width, but I can't get the row heights to go back to what they were. I checked the font sizes in each cell, as well as the paragraph settings. There are no spaces after or before text, and the paragraph spacing is single. I tried adjusting the row heights in table formatting, but it doesn't accept my changes. I'm at a loss. The table no longer fits on the page, height-wise.
Besides rebuilding the table, is there anything I'm missing? I'd like to avoid rebuilding the table if I can.
