Description drc 2004-01-08 17:20:02 UTC
Optimal row heights are calculated when the command is invoked, for the <i>cell 
data and metrics</i> current at the time.   This is a user hostile feature 
leading to wasted prints (and unnecessary erosion of our precious rain 
forests).  To be more user friendly could we:
a) have 'printer metric' (ie WYSIWYG) as the installation default.
b) have 'optimal' as a row height value/property, and recalculate row height 
when data changes (and pagination when row height changes).  The de-luxe 
solution would be an option to select this way of working in the 'optimal row 
height' dialogue box.
c) help files amended accordingly (further to issue 24216 relating to the 
status quo)
I suspect there is a similar issue with optimal column width.

Hi Bettina,

IMHO this is more contraproductive as it would help.
