Import PDF Comments not working correctly for Tables.

PDF comment import not working accurately on tables

1. ID 14 Mac
2. Import PDF comments to layout including simple 2-column tables in which an entire row is marked as deleted/struck through
3. Expected that the entire row would be deleted upon acceptance of edit via PDF Comments palette
4. In fact Accepting edit only deletes the contents of the first cell of the row, leaving the orphaned data behind.

    Unfortunately I can see also a follow-up bug.
    Let's accept a comment in a table row where all the contents of all the text cells should be removed.
    As we know, only the text of the first cell will be removed.

    Clever as we are: How about importing the same commented PDF again?
    Doing the job in several steps?

    Just tried exactly this:
    Removed all comments from the PDF Comments panel.
    Imported the same commented PDF again.

    InDesign did not like that and crashed.

    Hi,
    I can see this bug as well. Just tested with InDesign CC 2019 14.0.1.209 on Windows 10

    Only the text of the first cell will be removed if I accept the strike through-comment that is running through all the text cells of a table row.
