Tables in a docx file saved from writer will display slightly to the left, outside of the text boundary, when opened in ms word 2016 / 2019, compared to writer (see comparison image).
In ms word, clicking "File -> Info -> Convert" will resolve the difference.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new file in writer, type some text and insert a table, type some text into the table, save as docx.
2. Compare file in writer and ms word.
In word the text inside and outside of the table will be aligned evenly and the table will be outside the text boundary. in writer the text will not be even and the table will be inside the text boundary.
Tables should be rendered the same in writer and word.

tdf#106742: OOXML import/export: treat "tblInd" properly
Fixed in 6.3.6 and 6.4.2
by commit d978f5d40102a098f1faf1e98aa39ad122284299

related: tdf#106742 sw: DOCX import/export: fix default of table indent
There's a compatibilityMode in word/settings.xml in DOCX files:
If a document doesn't contain compatibilityMode, then the default
is 12, but the code for table indent import/export assumed that the
default is 15, so loading an ODF document and exporting as DOCX results
in wrong table indent when loaded in Word.
