      As far as I know, the answer to your question is No. However, a
      single press of the down arrow key to move to the next table row
      isn't that hard, is it?

      One thing that may help is that you can add an Insert Table Row
      button to your toolbar, which is a lot easier than using the menu
      command.

        Not that it is a chose to invoke the macro, but I guess there is no
        way to alter WP's preferences to affect this behavior.

          I do in fact have that option, but when the dialog box opens, Before
          is pre-selected, and it is necessary to manually change the
          preselected "Before" to "After."

          Yes, I understand, but it is often more convenient to be able to
          insert the extra row after where the cursor is sitting, rather than
          to have to move the cursor. Consider, for example, wanting to add an
          extra line when you are already in the last row and in the rightmost
          column of the table.

          The macro that Daryl Chinn suggested is more convenient in that
          circumstance (which I typically the situation in which I want to add
          an extra line.)

          Thank you, anyway, for your suggestion.
