Row height appears to be locked

I have run into a strange little problem I hadn't encountered before.

I created a "Note" table style, based on an old one. It's one row and two columns, with the left column containing an "information" icon.

The format looks fine, as long as the note is only one line of text.

If it goes to multiple lines, the text starts over on the same line, writing over it. I realize that may not make much sense, so here is an example of what this looks like if I start typing "This is a note" over and over again:

The row height appears to be locked. I tried to increase the maximum height at Table > Format > Row Format, but I can't increase the maximum over 14.

Help! And thank you!

What are the settings of the paragraph in the right column? Can you send a screenshot? What's the line spacing? Possibly 0?

Select the entire table and send a screenshot of the Row Format dialog box.

Hi ennar,

 

What happens, when you enter an empty paragraph in the cell with the icon? Is this possible?

What happens to the text in column 2?

Which FrameMaker version do you have? Is it up-to-date?

 

Best regards

 

Winfried

Hmm, I'm able to increase the row height if I add an empty paragraph to the cell with the icon.

The text in column 2 continues to be vertically centered.

I have the latest version of FrameMaker 15.

It was 0. I changed it to 12 and the row height magically stopped being locked. Wow. I'm not sure how the spacing got changed in the first place, but it's fixed now. Thanks so much for your help!
