    So...I use tables for keeping track of info. I've found that after I've created a table that's, say, 3 x 15 or something, and the cells are full of information (phone numbers, etc, etc.) if I go to "insert row," the cells have peculiar properties: the cells will be weirdly thin......and any text entered into them will be half-cut-off....you'll see maybe just the top of the text. Nothing I do to the text can fix it, such as selecting and changing font. Why is this happening? Shouldn't it be a simple matter to add a row, then enter text into the new row?

    Check your table properties - its the row or cell height that's probably giving you probs.

    Position yourself in one of the new cells - Right Click and choose Table Properties... then choose Row Tab and then specify or change the height size Play with that.
    Hope this helps
