disrupting reading order when merging/splitting cells in PDF table editor

A colleague and I are learning to reapir the accessibility of PDFs. We are having a consistent problem using the table editor, even after reading the manual and watching an instructional video on Adobe TV.

When merging or splitting cells in a data table, the new cell always appears outside the table in the document's reading order.The new cell should be nested inside the hierarchy of the table tag, but it always appears outside the table.
We use the mouse to select the borders of the new cell.
What are we doing wrong?
