Formatting the schedules header

Me again

 

I am wondering when the cells are very long specially in the header...is there a way that I distribute that cell vertically as excell does? So it is still one cell but don't need to be too wide...see my very wide cell attached...

The rows in the Schedule View are set at a fixed height regardless of how much text there is in a cell. However, once the Schedule is placed on a Sheet View, that same text will wrap and stretch the height of the header row to accommodate this.

 

This brings up a point I want to make about new Schedule behavior in Revit 2014. In all prior versions of Revit, the width of the columns in the Schedule View had absolutely no association with the column widths in the Schedule Graphics. This meant that you could stretch out the columns in the Schedule View without affecting the way it appears on the Sheet. However, there seems to be several changes that have come about in Revit 2013, including the newly create association between the column width of the Schedule View and Schedule Graphics. See image below (expand Spoiler).

What U R asking can be done like this goto the already generated Mech Equipment Schedule->properties pallet-> Formatting->select the cell you want to change to vertical in the field-> change the Heading orientation to vertical-> ok but this would not slove the problem u have to shorten the header of schedule when you import the schedule to sheet

Thanks guys..what Corey said is all I wanted... I thought the schedule is exactly look the same when I put it on the sheet and I didn't even bother putting it there to see that the cell contents get distributed vertically there:smileyhappy:
