Can I place tables side-by-side in Confluence?

Is there a way in Confluence to place individual tables side-by-side?  That is, like this:

Hello Forrest,

You can use the page layout feature to accomplish this. But I would also look into using the Section/Column macros, they allow for more freedom.



The problem with this is that it is not easy to 'align' the rows in the two different sections.

I have a table excertped from one page and then I am tried to created more columns for that original table were I can add more content (which cannot belong in the original table.

Workaround: I typed a letter on the line above one of the tables & changed the text color to white so it wouldn't show on the published page.  I had to play around with the text formatting but it worked for me and the tables in the 2 sections appear aligned now.

Yes, you can use page layouts to do this. Checkout

You can also insert section and column macros on any pages. In your case, it might be as simple as adding a new section with 3 columns and placing the tables in those columns.

Thank you, this is very helpful.

It doesn't look like I can move a table into another section (bummer) as I already created 6 of them.  Or am I mistaken?

If you position your cursor before the table and hit shift + down arrow till you have selected the whole table you can cut and paste it elsewhere.
