Sometimes we need to adjust the row heights in our worksheets to ensure that consistent row heights can make Excel spreadsheets look more organized and visually appealing. If the rows are not evenly sized, the data may not align properly and can make it difficult to read. In this post, we will introduce some ways to copy the row height in an Excel worksheet to another row.
Copy and Paste Row Heights via Copying the Row Height Value
You may have tried to copy the row heights through Excel’s special paste feature. There is no such option to paste the row heights, only the column widths included.
By checking the row height in Excel, you can copy the row height number and copy it to the row height when you adjust another row. You can do this by following these steps.
Step1: Select the row(s) whose height you want to check. You can do this by clicking on the row number on the left-hand side of the worksheet.
Step2: Right-click on the selected row(s) and click on “Row Height” in the context menu.
Step3: In the “Row Height” dialog box, the “Row height” field will display the row height. In this example, the row height is “60”, you can also change the row height in this dialog box if you need to.
Step4: Copy the “Row height” number and click “OK” to close the dialog box.
Step5: Select another row whose height you want to pasted the row height. Click on the row number to select the entire row.
Step6: Right-click on the selected row(s) and click on “Row Height” in the context menu. Before copying the row height, the current row height is displayed in row height field.
Step7: Press “Ctrl+V” to paste the row height value we copied from row 1.
After all above steps, row height is copied and applied to row 2 properly.

Another way to check the row height is to use the “Format Painter” tool. Here are the steps:
Step1: Click on the row number to select the row whose height you want to copy.
Step2: Click on the “Format Painter” button in the “Home” tab of the Excel ribbon.
Step3: Click on another row number to apply the copied row height. The height of the selected row will change to match the height of the copied row, allowing you to visually compare the two row heights.
