Lightbulb Library Row Height Shrunk — How Can I Reset It?

Hi all,

Very happy Calibre user here. I recently had to move the location of my library to a new drive, and one unpleasant side-effect of the otherwise smooth move is that Calibre has started displaying my list of books in single-line rows, where it used to display them in a more spacious arrangement with generous vertical space between books.

Now, I can drag the handles of the rows and space things out but only (it seems) individually, so I can't evenly re-space all of the rows as I'd like. Since I have quite a number of books I'd prefer not to have to do this manually.

It's a silly issue to run into but it makes reading through the list of books a bit more annoying and I'd rather just return to the previous, more spacious, layout settings.

Is there any way to accomplish this? Maybe a setting somewhere that I've missed? I'd appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks!

Thank you for your response!

Unfortunately, I had already tried that (and I've tried it again now just for good measure) but it doesn't change the row heights, nor much else for that matter.

Did you restart calibre after making the change? That is the only thing that affects row heights in calibre.

Yep, I'm afraid so. Re-started Calibre both times but it doesn't affect the spacing no matter which way that option is set to.

Did you upgrade calibre when you did the move? IIRC rows were higher in versions of calibre more than a year old, I think somewhere back in the 0.7 range. If you upgraded from one of these, then that explains the change.
