Merged cells aren't editable when the cells below are having different sizes and the left one is smaller than the right one.
If you then click in the midlle of the merged cells you can't edit the cell. You need to go to the beginning or the end of the cell to be able to edit the text in the cell. It is only editable till the end of the first column, not after the end of the cell.
