I’ve just added a table (3 rows, 7 columns) to an Impress presentation and have a number of issues making it smaller. Each cell is initially tall enough for about two lines at the initial font size of 18pt.
- If I one line of text in each cell, selecting Table / Size / Minimal Row Height doesn’t reduce the cell heights any further.
- If I drag the middle upper selection point downward to shrink the table, it moves the whole table down. I can, however, make the table taller by dragging upward. Similarly, if I drag the middle lower selection point upward, nothing happens until I cross the top border, at which point I starting moving the table up. I can make the table taller by dragging downward.
- If I select somewhere else along the top line, I can drag the top row smaller, but if I then select Table / Size / Distribute Rows Equally, the table is resized to its initial height.
- Reducing the font size does nothing.
As a workaround, I can drag each row separator to make the rows as small as possible, which gives the desired one-line size but it’s as if the system thinks that each row should be at least two lines tall.
