Row height is too big on new library

I have 7 Calibre libraries, and each time I create a new one, I choose "Copy Structure From Existing".

I did this again yesterday, same way I always do, except this time the new library has rows that are taller than all my other libraries. I manually resized them (not too much hassle as I only have 9 rows/books to start with) but every time I add a new book, the row height is big again for the entry.

Any idea what's going on?

Doh!
What OS (and Version)?
What Version of Calibre?
Did you set the Preferences: Look and Feel: User Interface Style different?
(Actually, is everything on that preference page the same?)

I'm not sure why Look and Feel settings would change when creating a new library? Anyway I checked all 8 libraries, and all 8 have identical Look and Feel setting, like this:

Most Preferences are not stored In the Library. They are per user. (AWAG: Once used on a book: conversion settings are stored, but the Global ,preference setting is not stored)

The setting (a good one ) you chose, includes all the (DB) Structure (custom fields) of the existing Library (otherwise, there would be (your) data-trimming ).

13pt? font, I use 9pt on XP.
Change the setting 'Calibre Style" (a recent addition) to "System Default" and see which you like better.

I'm not sure you understand my problem - I *know* what the difference between System Default and Calibre Style is, I purposely chose Calibre Style for all my libraries.

I'm merely wondering why all of a sudden creating a new library from existing structure would cause the row height to be large, when *the exact same* operation 7 times previously hasn't done this...

Yes, all on the same MBP. I simply choose "Switch/create library" then "Create an empty library at the new location" and tick "Copy structure from current library". I always start with my main library in view, so they've all been created from the same "seed" library.

And do the row heights remain large if you restart calibre?
