Tables: How to move, cut, paste rows and columns in new editor?

Hi everyeone,

it seems that the 'new editing' experience has removed the buttons for cutting, copying and pasting table rows and columns.

Dear Atlassian team, can you PLEASE reinstate those features? They are crucial for the user-experience. Without them, the new editor is really just making things worse.

If that's not possible, can you at least tell me how to move back to the previous editing experience? Thank you

Hi @Daniel Brumund ,

In the new Confluence editor, the options for tables are now within the table itself. I've included an image below. When you put your cursor in a particular cell, you'll see a little icon in the right-corner of the cell. That's the Cell options menu. Click on it and you'll see options for adding or removing rows and columns.

 Hope this helps -- Sharon

Please note that this answer does NOT solve the problem. I am well aware of the new table menu that opens up within the table.

The problem is that this menu does NOT include options to cut/copy/paste rows and columns. Therefore, this new editor is really not working for me - and many others who, quite frankly, expect these features to be in the new editor.

So, to whoever 'accepted' this answer: I'd kindly ask you to take that back and refer to your developers team regarding the actual issue.

Thank you.
