The other way to handle this is to wrap text. Microsoft Project doesn't provide an easy text format property for you to wrap text as in Excel.
Here is the step to wrap text.
Environment: Microsoft Office Project 2007
- Move the mouse to the left most column and drag under the line that you want to wrap text until there is enough space. The text will be wrapped automatically.
If you want to do many rows at once, you can select other row by holding Control key as well.
