I have opened a table that I created 2 years ago. How do I determine the height of an existing row in the table? Cell Options / Rows and Columns allows me to set minimum and maximum height but I cannot remember how to find the actual existing height of a selected row.

 

Thanks in advance.

Change the "At Least" to "Exactly" and you should get the reading. It's easier using the Table panel rather than the menu.

Hi Michael,

for cells with auto height one has no control in InDesign to determine the height.

Something I am missing from start when working with tables in InDesign.

 

A script could help, written in ExtendScript (JavaScript).

Select one single cell and alert its height ( measurement system is that of your rulers ) like that:

The very simple code of this little script is this:

alert( app.selection[0].height );

 How to save this code as script file, install the script file and run the script from the Scripts panel in InDesign see:

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
