I'm using the standard EE 'Textarea (Rich Text)' field (on EE 2.10.1), but no matter what I put in the 'Textarea Rows' field, when viewing the field in the control panel it's only around 150 pixels tall.

I can of course drag the bottom right hand corner of the field to make it display more of its contents but it's a pain to have to do this each time.

Is this a known bug or is there a way to get this field to display deeper?

Have you inspected the field using your developer console? Oh, and FYI, this isn't an EE question. Textarea rows constraint has nothing to do with styling, just how many rows are allowed to be typed.

Want a different height? You need to style it with CSS:

textarea {
    height: 666px;
    width: 999px;

Use this:


to add custom CSS to your Control Panel.
