Inconsistent behavior with adding a new row while there are merged cells

      Problem summary

      While adding a new row to a table when there are merged cells present, the new row's merge behavior is inconsistent.

      Cell merge type on current row New row position Result
      Cells merged across columns Insert above Cells in new row copies the current row's merges
      Cells merged across columns Insert below Cells in new row copies the current row's merges
      Cells merged across rows Insert above Cells in new row does not extend the current row's merged cells
      Cells merged across rows Insert below Cells in new row extends the current row's merged cells

      The third scenario stands out from the rest as it does not not extend the merged cells, and instead inserts a standalone cell above the merged cells. It appears to duplicate the row formatting from the row above instead of using the current row's formatting.

      The fourth scenario inserts a row below, and it does correctly extend the merged cells so that now the merge is one cell longer.
