Why can't I move or copy a table without the text going crazy?

I have been running into an issue lately where the contents of tables is going nuts on me if I try to move, or even copy and paste the table.  I just want to move it over a little, and the text gets all huge and disfigured.  THIS:          turns into THIS:   .

And undo won't fix it.  The text cannot be fixed.  Text was entered as a straight table, so I don't get it.  

What's happening?

P.S.  Not new to CorelDraw, been using it since 1989 Ver, 2 

Sad that I can't figure this out by myself.
