now equally sized rows. The distribute rows entry is mislabeled in help as
"Space Rows Equally" and the help describes action to size rows equally.

What is missing, is a true distribution of rows. That requires for the whole
table (or for a selection cells on multiple rows) the rows are equally resized
and the existing vertical space is retained, i.e. the table size is fixed and
the rows (whole table, or within a selection) are distributed equally into the
existing height.

Conversely for Columns; the Table -> Autofit -> "Distribute Columns Evenly"
.uno:DistributeColumns performs a correct distribution. The selected columns
are equally distributed into the existing width.  But here the Help is wrong. 

It is labeled "Space Columns Equally" and it lists action to be "Adjusts the
width of the selected columns to match the width of the widest column in the
selection. The total width of the table cannot exceed the width of the page." 
That action would be a "Size columns equally" but it is really doing a correct
