how to paste tab-delimited text into a table

With the new editor, which is in many respects a lot worse than the old one, I don't seem to be able to convert tab-delimited text to tables, no matter whether I copy-paste it in an existing table or into a blank space and attempting to convert it later .

What's happening here? Does Atlassian really want to dumb us down to their extremely low new standards where you have only one - excrutiatingly cumbersome - way to do things?

We are having the same problem. Atlassian continuously removes functionality that used to exist and was very useful in favor of "pretty" interfaces that are simple but can't do anything.

But hey, at least they didn't mark this question as "SOLVED" by saying they're not going to fix it!

On the other hand, they're not going to fix it.

My team is also searching for a way to do this. We have found a few paths to do it, but it is extremely cumbersome and requires using Excel or Word or some other intervening step.
