Solidworks Table Troubles

Hello all,

I've been working on a run of drawings lately that use a bunch of Solidworks Tables (not Excel tables). The reason we haven't been using embedded Excel tables is we've had some display issues with printouts and pdf files.

Some of the tables are fairly complicated, with many rows and columns, merged cells, different fonts/formatting and such.

But every now and then if I pick somewhere in the table just right, my carefully formatted rows and/or colums resize themselves. Sometimes it will take a column and squish it up so you can't even read the text anymore.

Also it might make a column and make every one in the table the same size, usually 10x wider than it should be.

Does anyone know how to avoid this? What am I clicking on that's triggering it?

It's frustrating because I'd like to have more control over these things, like copying entire rows, multipile pics for formating all at once, etc. And this stuff happens by itself, when I don't want it to!
