I have a grid with at text area that is multi-line, when viewing it is fine:

But when I go to edit, the row height reduces making editing difficult: 

How can I make the edit row height at least the same height has it was in non-edit mode (or even a little bit larger).
I'm using this as a template:

    function createNote() {
        return "<textarea class='text' >{{:DeployNotes}}</textarea>";
    function readNote(args) {
        return args.val();
    function writeNote(args) {
        $('.text').css("max-width", args.element.parent("td").width());
        $('.text').css("max-height", args.element.parent("td").height());

Also is there a way (rather easily) to make the row height adjustable, like column with dragging?

Hi Michael, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have achieved your requirement by applying setting a dynamic height which is based on the content in write event in EditTemplate. Please refer to the following code example, 
Code example
@Edit Tempalte functions 
function createNote() { 
        return "<textarea class='text'>{{:DeployNotes}}</textarea>"; 
    function readNote(args) { 
        return args.val(); 
    function writeNote(args) { 
        var contentHeight = $("#GridCustomerID")[0].scrollHeight.toString() + "px"; 
        $($("#GridCustomerID")[0]).css("height", contentHeight);//set textarea height based on the content
