### Height of single row in table

Hi forum,

does anybody know whether I can adjust the height of single rows in a table without influencing the other?

Cheers

Try putting a length on the \\ at the end of the row, e.g., \\[2ex].

Hi,

there's a number of ways to achieve what you desire; however, the simpler approach (in my opinion) would be to use some of the commands provided by the makecell package; a little example:

\documentclass{article}\usepackage{makecell} \begin{document} \begin{tabular}{cc}   Column1a & Column2a \\   Column1b & \Gape[1cm][1cm]{Column2b} \\   Column1c & Column2c \\   Column1d & Column2d \\\end{tabular} \end{document}
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,...

OK, thanks for your replies. The [2px] thing does not work. The gape stuff does, but not as I want. Basicly what I want to do is to add an empty row somewhere inside the table which is very thin. This \Gape somehow does not let me define small values (like 1pt..).

Any Ideas?

Change 2ex in frabjous's suggestion to 1pt or 3pt or whatever value you need.

\\[-2ex]

to the line to shrink it.

Thanks a lot!
