Text it's not invisible, it's at the bottom of the cell, resize the row, and the text it's visible.
Resizing the column not too much you can see some blank rows at top of the cell.

BTW, you're correct about not invisible part.. It's present, but more or less out or reach (scroll large cells issue). However, I would prefer a downsize of the cell.. Excel does this when entering the cell (after the resize)... This did work before in LibO too. However, it's probably not gonna happen I guess, bug 118729

refactor ListBox/ComboBox to use RenderContext
I'm a bit confused. If bug 118729 is for the behavior that there is no automatic row height calculation after a column resize, then what should we fix here?
Should this be closed as a duplicate of bug 118729?
Nothing can be fixed here..
However, I still think that automatic row height calculation after a column resize *should* happens. Hench it did work this way before the given commit. And it does work the same way in Excel (if i remember correctly). The argumentation in bug 118729 is not convincing. But battling the mighty UX-advise division is a lost cause in this case. And sadly not to many reports for this issue either..
The midway solution would be an on/off switch for automatic row high calculation. But that will create a whole new problem of to many settings (and the question about the default setting). sigh
Closing as duplicate of bug 118729..

Something could be "fixed", to quote myself from bug 118729:
"I tested with Excel 2013 and there the behaviour is:
1) Change the width of a wrapped cell, text gets cropped vertically (like with LibO)
2) Double-click to the cell from step 1) and click away: the height adapts to display the full text (LibO does not do this)"
So we could implement the behaviour of Excel, which would not be such a big annoyance.
