Inserting Row in existing table of converted Word Perfect to Word 2010 Document Problems

I have a client that recently upgraded and needed all of their Word Perfect files converted to Microsoft Word 2010.

They have many that include large tables of plat information for the county and are needing to insert rows in the middle of the table to add information. When we insert a new row the default size and font are not the normal Times New Roman 12. They are really small rows. I can't seem to get in there and make them larger either. Has anyone run across this before?

I have attached the file and if you look about 1/2 way down the first page, I have "tried" to insert a new row between 10-33 and 10-38, that is what I get.

Please advise.

There doesn't seem to be a Font problem, but there is a problem with line spacing which is a paragraph property. The default line spacing for paragraphs for the cells in the table is 6 points, but the actual text paragraphs are set to single line spacing. Six points is less then the text height, so lines will overlap.

A quick fix is to select the table and to click on the tiny arrow at the bottom right of the paragraph group on the Home tab. This opens the Paragraph dialogue. Find the Line spacing box and set it to Single.

From the Table group on the Layout tab,  Select the table and then click on the Properties button.

Choose the Row tab and tick the 'Specify height' checkbox. Set the height to .3", and the 'Row height is' dropdown to 'At least'.

Note that the Top and bottom Cell Margins (alignment group)  are set to zero, so the text could look crowded, except that the text in all the current cells is preceded by an empty paragraph.

PS. I suppose that a Plat is some sort of land property, but what exactly?

I did this, it fixed the size, but the font and text size aren't changed, and I can't get them to change.

I'm looking for a way to change all of these easily as well as our client isn't really tech savy and won't want to change this everytime a new row is inserted.

I see that about the cell margins, however, I can't even recreate the larger font size in a new row when inserted.

I'm not entirely sure what a plat is either. I think it's just property, i.e. in a sub division each plot of land that is owned by seperate entities, those are numbered for recording purposes.

Do you have a lot of these, or is it a one-off?
