Description: Trying to copy and paste a cell with in the same sheet. When the cell is pasted into a new row, that entire row height reduces size to match the 12pt text.

I did test this and confirmed that the adjustment varies according to different text sizes within the same .30" row.

FYI, This functions properly in ODF, just not xlsx.

1 Create New sheet
2 select all (Cont A) or top left corner above #1.
3 Change row size to .30" and text size to 12pt.
4 enter in some test text in a few random cells.
5 Save as xlsx and close (Key step)... I'm saving as 2007-365 xlsx file
6 Re open file.
7 Right click on a populated cell and copy.
8 paste into a cell in an "unused" row..(this doesn't happen in a populated row)

At this point the pasted row has reverted back an optimal row height. my new height is showing .21". 

I have only tested on a x64 intel Windows 10 machine.

Bibisected with Linux 41max repo to
use direct calls to set row height, fdo#61721

For bibisecting, I used an .ods file that I saved to .xlsx each time.
