Surely you *do* want to do that? A spreadsheet is designed for
display in the editing screen or on a printed page. In either case it
is difficult to imagine that you don't want to see what is in cells
as you navigate around or read the spreadsheet.
Instead I'd like to keep the cell small, and only expand when it is
clicked on, or manoeuvred onto via keyboard.
I don't see any way to do that.
I can imagine that you might perhaps have a single cell which has
much more text than other cells in the same row and column, so that
expanding either would be wasteful of display space. One way around
this would be to put the text for that cell somewhere else - either
out of the way on the same sheet or even on another sheet. You could
then create a hyperlink to the actual text in the relevant (small)
cell. This simplest way to do that is probably to give the target
cell containing the actual text a name (Insert | Names > |
Define...). In the original cell, go to Insert | Hyperlink, select
Document, click the Target in Document button, expand "Range names",
select the name, and then click Apply, Close, Apply, and Close. If
you now double-click the original cell, the oversize text will be displayed.
I trust this helps.
