Allow Newly Added Table Cells To Be Styled With "Content In A Flowed Container"

I'm working on some very old forms that our department maintains, and the person who designed them has long since left. I'm trying to add new table rows to a table and have them styled the same way as the other table rows, but for some reason they aren't picking up the "content flow" styling that the rest of the table benefits from. Here's a link to the form: Moving_Relocation_Reimbursement.pdf - Google Drive (Hope Google drive is OK)

As a disclaimer: These forms are set up badly! The person who made them didn't know how to set up a lot of things that are apparently standard for web forms. Unfortunately I have to use them as is, as we don't have enough manpower to overhaul all these.

I added in rows 17(0)-17(5) using the down facing clickable arrow on the left side of the table. I'm planning on eventually changing the names of these to the correct numbers, but I know that the name isn't an issue, as another item in the table 18(1) has proper styling.

Basically, I'm trying to get the numbers in the screenshot above to all line up. I can't manually adjust the cells in the table because the message, "Content Aligned In A Flowed Container" is greying out the paragraph alignment options. Is there something I have to do to "add" these new cells into the table flow? Appreciate your help with this!

So ultimately it is just an alignment issue? If that is the case if you want to send it to me at mousland@gmail.com I can fix it in about 5 minutes. Ultimately it just looks like someone used either a right margin in the paragraph tab or a margin in the layout tab

Question has been answered. Looks like the issue was in the "paragraph" menu. I think I managed to turn it off somehow. I was searching for settings in a similar but separate menu.

I have linked the file in the original post, you can download it there. Would it be possible for you to take a screenshot of the area that I need to change? I think the technical team would prefer I make the changes myself so that we don't upload a form that was touched by an outside party.

Really appreciate your help, I have been reverse engineering a lot of these forms when updates roll through and I've never dealt with "form flow" like this before.

Thank you!!!

The form is "flat", so there are no instances of users adding additional cells. We do save our forms as dynamic though. Historically some forms were dynamic and some static, but users became confused by different browser behavior when opening pdfs, so management decided to save them all as dynamic.

Hope this answers your question, please let me know if you need more info.
