I think the issue is that your customization is set up for the old way of doing things, which uses CSS only (and possibly complicated by the fact that the main element is named Table, which is fine, but without any additional settings the software is probably guessing if this is supposed to be HTML, CALS, other, and then maybe partially working but ultimately failing to figure it out).

If you add the following to your CTM file things should behave properly, and the new table editing behaviours will be enabled for your custom table type, including the functions in the Tables menu (that apply) and the Table Properties dialog (with functions that aren't relevant being disabled).

     
     

Table

     TableContentsRow
     TableEntry
   
 

The section should be made a sibling of the , , ,  , and sections in the CTM file.
