It seems like when you first place the table, the top-left corner goes exactly where your cursor is pointing (ignoring the grid). It is only once you try to move the table that the move honors the grid, but the original misalignment will remain.

Am I doing something wrong? Otherwise, is this a bug or intended feature? If a feature, then what is the reason?

Thanks.

I have no experience with tables, so take this for what it is worth...
I tried the tool for the first time to see how table placement behaves and it is as you described. I could not find a table origin or Snap To Grid type of option in the right-click pop-up menu. It would be nice if DipTrace added a table origin (with a snap option), perhaps to one of the outside corners of the table. As a workaround, I suppose you could turn off the grid, zoom in, and move the table so that one of its outside corners ends up as close as possible to where a grid point should be. Then, turn on the grid and move the table around in increments equal to the grid spacing. If the table size is changed, you might have to repeat this procedure.

It looks like an intended feature, not a bug. However, I also can't deal with it!

Thanks for the replies. For me it would be very helpful to line up with the grid, because then I could use a table for the Rev Block. Right now, it doesn't line up perfectly with the grid, and ends up looking sloppy.
