Align center in table doesn't work

Hi everyone,

In the table, the text is just aligning to Left or Righ! Center alignment doesn't work. I'm changing it for each cell individually.

How can I fix it? (v.6.5.1)


4 answers

I'm having the same problem. I'm using Chrome 83.0.4103.61

Centering text works for some cells, but not for others.

I have also had this issue.  While I cannot speak to why it is happening or how to really fix it, my work-around is to...

  1. Create a new table above or below the one misbehaving with as many columns and rows as you will need.
  2. Copy and paste the content from the original table to the new table.

It seems that the issue primarily comes up when you add a row to an existing table, so migrating the content to a new table resolves whatever is going on.

It's important that your replacement table has all of the columns and rows you will need.  If you have to add rows, you're likely to have the issue come up again, and have to create yet another replacement table.

Is it elegant?  No.  Does it work? Yes.

You should be able to highlight the cells that you would like center and then click the center button.  If this is not working you might try a different browser.

Thank you
Still doesn't work ...

It was great if we could install another editor plugin for confluence....
