There are many occasions when one needs to introduce a multicolumn segment within text, or indeed a full blown table. This is currently (1.7.3) very badly supported.

After pasting a table into the text, I'm left with no way to flow or wrap text around it, nor can I assign space above or below it. Am left with a dead paragraph.

This is basic guys, and needs fixing with a high priority.

If pasting a Publisher table into text use the Pinning Studio to adjust it

If placing (not pasting) a Publisher table on top of text you can use the text wrap options to adjust it

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Pinning has the effect of moving the table if you add text before the pin... this is one of the most maddening issues.

If you don't want it to move with the text then don't Pin it.

Just drag it on top of the text frame, and set the text wrap settings for the table so the text flows around it.

The problem is that if the table needs to follow specific text and you don't pin it, the table appears within the text flow.

When you DO pin it, the table is moved, or if text is added just after the pin point, the table slides left and right.

I suppose the best solution is to insert a new paragraph such that the table is a paragraph all on its own.

Right. Or at least put a Line Break before it.
