Thanks for your feedback. Yes, from the shared detail it is not a bug. I have closed WORDSNET-12242 issue as ‘Not a bug’.
note that a table in MS Word is a set of independent rows. Each row has
a set of cells independent on cells of other rows. So there is no
logical “column” in a MS Word’s table. “The 1st column” is something
like “a set of the 1st cells of each row in a table”.
example, it’s possible to have a table where the 1st row consists of
two cells: 2cm and 1cm and the 2nd row consists of different two cells:
1cm and 2cm of width.
