Table/section running across 3 pages

Create a two-column section with a two-column table inside, both running RTL as well as the page. Whenever the table runs across more than one page, part of it disappears, but if selected it seems to have relocated over the section as shown in the screenshot.

I repro the relocating jump.

In 3.3 it is broken in a different way and does not jump.

Salamu alaikum,

As a work around, you can use the navigator, 
1-Select the concerned section,
2- Delete the section,
3- Undelete the section,

Now you can displcay your pdf correctly, or export it as a PDF.
But each time you reopen your file you have to execute the same steps on each two columned section of you document, which is for sure counter-productive at this stage;

I really hope that developers will take into consideration this work around and make us happy users. :)
